The title says it all. I have nothing else to add. Just that I'm getting a lot of bh. Anybody else?

I wish! Not a single one! I just can't believe everyone else has them, and I don't. I don't think it means anything...I wish I was getting some...Not even RRL tea gets them going

I am also feeling a bit nauseous and have had loose stools. I was getting seriously worried about the bh and decided to go lie down. After awhile they seemed to calm some. It made me realize I'd better get my hospital bags packed completely, not half-a$$ed. Sigh. Wonder why I feel nauseous though. Oh well, one day at a time.

Getting up, sitting down, twisting, turning in bed, breastfeeding, smiling, bending down....all end up with a BH...so I am with you with lots of BHs.

I also got some kind of goop coming out -- could be my mucus plug...I will be 37 weeks tomorrow!

Yep yep, whenever I change positions, stand up, pee etc. etc. I can't really feel them at all, the only way I can tell is by touching my belly. Sometimes they make me feel a little breathless too, whats up with that?

Mine also make me feel breathless at times. And they're getting more painful but are irregular. This breathless feeling reminds me of the reason panting and deep breathing during labour and birth felt good. Your body needs the oxygen, I guess.

Mine are stopping me in my tracks.
Feels like the baby is doing head spins down there.

Count me in on the having lots group, but they go away when I sit down. We went to the mall to walk around last night (and go up and down the escalator with ds) and by the end they were getting quite strong and uncomfortable.

Today is a different story, though. I'm starting to think what I have this afternoon is most definitely not bh.

I'm having them and the diarrhea and nausea. What is that suppose to mean? I took a shower and washed my hair and I feel better with the nausea, but still kind of snappy at everyone. I got all the towels in the wash right now so that we will be ready.

I think I have had them. But I only knew when I touched my belly and it was tight. But today was the first time I actually felt the tightening of the braxton hicks! So time is counting down and I have to get my bags packed.

This is kid #3 for me, and I think this time they are by far more uncomfortable than they were with the last two pregnancies. Does this indicate how different things will be in labor overall or no? Anyone else have this kind of experience?

i'm having lots of B-Hs too and find it surprising - they don't hurt really, but i notice the tightness and sometimes feel out of breath too. if i were timing them i think they would be about 5 minutes apart at times! but then they go away. so, does this mean anything? i'm 36 weeks + 2.

i'm having lots too these days..which for me is totally unusual. i don't remember having any with my first and few with my second. my midwife said its common to have more after 1 or 2 babies because the uterus needs a bit more toning to get ready for labor..

I have so many. Every time I move. I have noticed that now when I get them I get breathless and have mild, mild, mild cramping in my lower abdomen. I keep hoping they are gettin' me somewhere..... but they never do!

Interesting! I have been avoiding drinking RRL tea thinking it'll make things uncomfortable unnecessarily.....but perhaps that's fine and I should do it anyway.

I hadn't had a single one for my entire pregnancy until yesterday morning. Now I seem to have them constantly - they came and went all day today. They don't hurt, but they make me uncomfortable and out of breath. DH keeps saying this means things are getting closer, but I have no idea what to think seeing as I don't think the baby has even dropped yet.

Same here. They never hurt with my last two pregnancies, but this time they hurt. I almost thought I was in labor at 30 weeks because they hurt so much and lasted 2 hours, but my mw said they were just bh's.

Not knowing what they feel like... I don't think I've had any, but I get these sharp stabbing pains, mostly when the baby moves. BH aren't like sudden sharp pains that make you yelp, are they?

no..they are more like ripples of tightening muscles that you feel like pressure, but not any pain..at least thats what i feel.
