OK,OK,im gonna sound really dumb but here goes!!!Last night i went to bed and woke up around 3am with really strong pains Scared I woke my DH and told him what it felt like and he timed them for a while but then we fell asleep again.This went on untill about 6am now they feel like they are easing of and im feeling pretty normal again??
When i went into labour last pregnancy i had no pain.I got woken by my waters breaking, i got to the hospital (with minor contractions)was fully dialated but had to have a c-section(breech)and that was that so im a bit worried im gonna miss the signs??I still have a little while to go 6wks but i had Vic 5 1/2 weeks early.My DH wants me to stay home but today is my out day LOL Thumbs Up I have to take my DS swimming do my weekly shop then im going to see my mum as she has a few days of work im the type of person that never sits still.LOL
Im thinking this was just a braxton hicks episode???

I had a long run of braxtons that were really strong on my due date with George, some real ones in there too but I knew they weren't strong enough and they tailed off.

Four days later I went into labour. I was always told hun, if your unsure it's the real thing then it 99% chance it isn't. I was told by a mw when I was having Charlotte that you will know when you are in labour because it will hurt differently to braxtons or tightenings, which in my experience it does.

I never had any Braxton Hicks with Jas. I remember feeling quite jealous that other people at antenatal were getting them but then I was watching TV one night and bam!, waters broke and Jas arrived 3hrs 20mins later and I had my baby first at 34 weeks Thumbs Up

I'm told you can start contractions early and they are mild but usually you see the mucus plug. I can't comment on that as I saw no plug at all and wouldn't know what it looked like if it bit me on the nose Embarassed

Keep us all posted Hug

When I had braxtons I felt them on my bump and a little in my back - all I can describe it as was as though someone blowing up a balloon inside me and it was pushing my belly out and out and I could feel it stretching and stretching and stretching.

Contractions were more sharper and in my hips and down below, with Charlotte in the tops of my legs I felt a pressure a bit like someone sitting on me and George I got that pressure in my back and peaked for a lot longer.

Hope bubs satys in there a little longer hun
Hug

I had really strong braxton hicks with both pregnancies,my midwife told me I was very sensitive as just touching my belly set them off,and sex so that went out the window,all I can say is you wont miss the signs of real contractions as they are painful but wont go away,keep us updated but I do know braxtons are a good sign as its your bodys way of practising for the real thing xxxx

I had very strong braxton hicks that started quite a few weeks before i was due and permanently kept thinking he was coming.

To be honest they felt like the first stages of labour to me looking back on it!!!
