From personal experience I had two separate days of Braxton Hicks weeks before arrival. With as much activity you say you're having there's something going on!! Quite possibly dilation. I stayed at 3cm for about four weeks until my labor Day. Hang in there!! Breathe and try to find comfort in some relaxing pose while experiencing them. I know it's hard!
Maybe your body is starting to prepare itself. But it doesn't necessarily mean ur dilated I was getting them very frequently and last week I was xhecked for dilation and nothing. My cervix was still hard and high. But everyone is different.
But ur still too early to go into labor though or no?
I am 35+5 so it's a bit early for labor I was just curious if these could be causing dilation because they are so frequent now. I guess I'll have to wait until Tuesday to find out but I'm so ready to meet me son. Only 4 weeks and 2 days to go :) hopefully hell hang in there until its time
This sounds EXACTLY like me at the min im 34+4 and i was getting them couple times a day up until last week now for past 3 days iv been getting them in constant groups for hours there horrible i can barely breath tight stomach and my back is sooooo painful u think i would be used to it its my 3rd baby boy and they dont get any easier there alot more uncomfortable and freequent then my last pregnancys (having them now as i type) :( but i was thinking same thing maybe dialation?atleast i hope there doing something!
How far along are you now?!? I'm so ready for my appointment so I can see if anything is happening. My baby shower is on Saturday the 8th so hopefully not too much happening I cant miss that!!!
Im 34 + 4 weeks now and im in uk so they wont check for dialation or anything unless im overdue or in labour x
Omg i have the EXACT same things happening....this is my second pregnancy and still VERY early for me (24weeks)....im constantly worried!!!! The bhc are alot more frequent now then before and very very painful with rhis pregnancy....doctors r not to worried tho...
Maybe I'm just going nuts because I wanna meet my little man so badly that I'm hoping for progress but who knows really right?!? Good luck to all you ladies
Keep us updated for tuesday if u r then fingers crossed me too good luck and hope they are doing something if not hope they calm down x
I have been having bh a ton since I turned 32 weeks and the past week I had 3 days of non stop contractions/braxton hicks at my appt this past wednesday I was checked and I am dilated 2cm 60% effaced and my little girl has dropped into position :) I am 36+3 but this is also my second baby and my first was the same thing and I didn't have him until 39+5.
Ill def post if I am dilated at all! I am anxious for my appointment now!
Its defintely your bodies way of getting ready for labour but unfortunately doesnt mean it will happen anytime soon. Ive been having them regularily since i was 20 weeks. Im 25 werks now and have them everyday and sometimes all day long. This is my second baby and my doc says its pretty normal. Hopefully youll at least start the dialating phase and help labour along!
