Mine have really kicked up a notch in the last week or so (31 weeks here).  Just last night I decided to go ahead and download an app to count contractions to see how frequent they were coming.  I get maybe 3/hour for an hour or two and then nothing for another hour or two.

Mine are coming all the time and I’m 34 weeks. I’d not heard the 5/hour thing, but they’re everyday and pretty frequent. They’re not regular though and I know they’re not the real contractions because not all of them are one minute long and they’re not as painful and I don’t get the endorphine kick from them. However, I did drop over the weekend which could mean Wombat may come early. Thank you stress.

I’m 26 weeks and was directed by my doctor at my last appointment (about a week and half ago) to monitor them since I just started feeling them.  She gave me the same guideline but it was 4 in an hour.  


Some women get to feel a lot of them and others don’t.  I guess that’s the same darn “everyone is different” info!  🙂

I didn’t have any until 37 weeks, and then bam!  I had timeable, regular contractions like every day until I delivered.  BH contractions are good, even though it can be annoying; your body is getting ready for the big event!

I haven’t experienced them yet, I’m 32 weeks.  My (newest) concern is that I won’t really be able to tell the difference between BH contractions and the real thing.  My doctors have said it’s rare that you don’t know but it’s still my concern. 

Do the baths and fluids help a lot?

I never had any with my first pregnancy.  But with this one (2nd) I am having them, not everyday- maybe every other day, 2 to 3 in an hour, then they stop.  I am 30 weeks.
