Mother of two great little guys, G (9/28/09) and W (1/20/12)
I am due around Feb 2 with our 3rd son . Our first was a preemie at 35 weeks, and our 2nd was born on his due date. I had a pretty normal amount of Braxton Hicks the 2nd time around, but have had a LOT more with this pregnancy. I understand that is very normal, but over the last week their frequency has increased significantly beyond that and over the last couple of days they are often uncomfortable. Not out-and-out PAINFUL most of the time, although that's happening too, but definitely strong enough where I need to breathe through them.
I completely realize I could have a few more weeks to go, but it seems like my body's been really "gearing up". I'm curious if it's normal to have Braxton Hicks like this for 2-3 weeks? What was your experience in this regard?
Just wondering ....
