I'm 37 weeks pregnant, planning a hospital VBAC. I've taken RRL capsules for a couple of weeks now (started at 35 weeks) and stopped a few days b/c the Braxton Hicks contrax were getting crazy. Well, even without the RRL, they BH are frequent now, so I started it back up tonight. I'm just wondering, how does all this "practice" contracting help with labor? I remember some BH with my daughter, but not this many, not this frequent, not this uncomfortable. My labor progressed fine with her -- water broke, contrax started within the hour five minutes apart, progressed past 8 cm before c-section due to fetal distress caused by true knot in cord.
