Really Bad Braxton Hicks

alicia - December 22

Im 35 weeks pregnant and getting awful braxton hick contractions. They start in my back and just hurt. I v been having them for a few days but i only really seem to get them at night. Has anyone else had them this bad this early? I know they're supposed to get more intense as you near your due date but i have over a month to go at least since im on my first pregnancy. my mother told me to try and time them last night and they were about 12 minutes apart several different times until i fell asleep and loss track. They're just bothering me because i get the tightening of the uterus all throughout the day but they only really hurt at night and its just been the past few days. Well i hope someone can help me.

Well I'm 37 weeks and I get them. I started getting them in my 34th week, but it wasn't frequent. Now they are so bad that I have to lower myself to the ground. I'm not sure how soon you get them before labior, but I'm sure there are expceptions to every rule.

I would call your dr. It is possible you are having pre-term labor. I have to be on a monitor twice a day for BH contractions and the nurses are looking to see if they are coming at regualr intervals, if I have too many in 1 hour and they always ask if I have lower back pain or cramping. Maybe you are just more uncomfortable at night, I always feel great in the morning and worse as the day goes on.
