Another Braxton Hicks Question

ssmith - April 9

I know there have been a ton of BH questions...so what's one more? I am just starting my 39th week, and the past few days I am been having almost back to back Braxton-Hicks contractions. Sometimes it will be 10 minutes or more of BH, one right after another. They aren't painful, just tight. Is this okay? Is anyone else experiencing this? They also happen a lot at night, even rolling over in bed will trigger a marathon of them...

most of my BH come at night also, lying in bed. it feels more like severve menstural cramps, and i usually only have 2 or 3, but not at even intervals. if you keep having them evenly (ever 10 mins or so) and more than 5 an hour call your doctor, i wouldnt be very worried, except you're 39 weeks and really close to delivering. this might mean your body is ready to go into labor!

Hi! It happened to me once..I dont remember how far along I was when this happened but I know exactly what time it did happened. Went to bed around 9p then woke up around midnight bcoz I was hurting underneath my left b___st plus my tummy was tightning as well...It was a good 20-25 mins that I feel sooooooo miserable. Ive asked my Dr. about this and he said its BH (??) but isnt BH usually last 2-3 mins? Hmmmm well after that incident thank goodness it didnt happen again. (whew) I would suggest to consult your Dr. about that.....just to be safe. Goodluck!
