Every book I read says that Braxton Hicks do not hurt. Well I think they do. They aren't like actual labor, but they are painful to me. Why do they say they don't hurt? Also I am 31wks pregnant and at my sono I had Monday the baby was already head down facing backwards. Is that normal for him to be in position already?
Hiya im not far ahead of you.and been experiencing lots of BH.. some hurt some dont,my babys head is already head down,his tummy towards my back which is normal.the little one can still change postition.
Of course they hurt!!! A man dr must of came up with that one.
Like three weeks ago i went to the er with contractions and he said I had IBS and would not feel my uterus contract!!! WTF
I asked him if my uterus was a muscle and he said yes, then I asked if he felt when he got an erection and he said of course. Then I said well I think I know when my uterus is contracting too! DUH Gesh were do they come up with these things?? You think they would of taken that fasle stuff out of the books by now.
HA! BH contractions hurt!!! I've been having them since 13wks (now almost 34) and most of mine hurt, but some do not... at my last sono at 28wks, my little girl was head down also but she also had her feet at her head. I'm pretty sure she's still head down as she's still sitting pretty low...
Another thing about those books - none of them tell you that your contractions can start at any # of minutes apart (Started at 2min apart with our son!!!)! So yeah, someone really needs to redo these books lol!!! Good Luck!
LOL, thanx for all the insight. I thought I was going crazy when they hurt or that it might be something else. I have been having them all day today and they are not fun! Ahh the joys of pregnancy, then motherhood :)
