<p>This is really foreign to me.  This is baby #4 and I've never had this many BH contractions with any of my other pregnancies.  It's crazy!  Does having a lot of BH mean anything about when the baby will come?  Or is this just some random thing that means nothing?  Is it because it's baby #4?  Or does having a lot of BH mean the baby will come earlier or that labor will be faster (I hope not faster!)?  Anyone have experience with this?</p>

<p>My labors are relatively quick (2.5 - 3.5 hours), and I've never gone past my due date (6 days early, 5 days early, and on my due date).  I've just never felt this crammed full of baby (that's the best way to describe it -- lol) and had so many BH before!</p>
<p>Of course, now that I wrote this post, you just know I'll be sitting here at 42 weeks still pregnant.  <span><img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="width:15px;height:31px;"> </span> Really, though, I'm under no delusion that I'll be going early.  Just wondering if there is a correlation between frequency of BH and baby arriving or duration of labor?  (I am a little concerned about the length of labor because I don't want it to be too fast.  My midwife is <em>at least</em> an hour away.)</p>

<p>You might want to have your urine checked for a UTI - increased BH contractions are one of the symptoms.</p>

<p>i've had bad BH since 25 weeks with this one, since 32w with my last one. i was induced/CS for pre-e at 37w with her, so no idea whether a natural labour would have been affected. i'm 33w now so it's been going on for 8 weeks and no sign of labour. only thing that's new is that baby dropped a week ago so it hurts more, i feel like i'm passing a watermelon with every BH.</p>
