Post subject: Braxton hicks
Are they normal at my stage? Whenever I lie down I get them, it feels how early labour did with Ava. I'm assuming because its my second that's why they are happening so early its been going on for 2/3 days and my belly goes rock hard and sticks out. I think I got them with Ava but not until later and they didn't cause any sensation (apart from after sex)

Anyone else having them this early? xx

I was googling the same yesterday cos they sstarted last night so regular for nd lasted ages just not painful.. And apparently Braxton hicks start at about 5week's but most people dont feel them till 15 week's but it's possible to feel them earlier or not at all.. I havent noticed any ti'll the last couple days.. X

I had them at 14 weeks with Samuel and this time I think from around 11 weeks I was aware of the tightenings... perfectly normal, especially if you are quite slender Smile

I think I know whats been causing them I have immense pain in my kidney this morning so I think I have hydronephrosis of the kidney again like I did with ava. Off to the doctors this morning to see what they can do. Last time I went months not knowing what it was but because I have had this pain before I know what it is.. which is comforting I guess as I know I can get it sorted

I remember with ava they told me it was causing contractions so Im guessing the same thing is happeneing again. This pregnancy i officially identical to Avas Laughing xx

Ahh I wonder if this is what I have been experiencing? I get tight pains round my belly sometimes like period pain. I have strong stomach muscles as always worked out so wonder if this is what it is. just thought I was doing too much.
