Re: Are these Braxton hicks???
just be aware...
i went into preterm labor at 27 weeks. i was at work and truly thought they were braxtons. i wasn't in any discomfort. but i told the nurses i was working with and i was told to sit down and call my midwife. sure enough, i was 70% and 2cm at 27 weeks. the thing with braxton hicks... if you feel them several times in a 15 minute period, sit down and put your feet up, drink a glass of water, and time them. braxton hicks should stop once you immoblize yourself and get hydrated. labor contractions keep on.
i am now 21 weeks with #2. #1 came at 38 weeks after 2 1/2 months of strict bedrest and meds. i am now a nurse and feel more confident in the info now that i have done a maternity rotation.
