Braxton Hicks?

I feel I should know this, given that this is my second pregnancy, but I can't remember getting Braxton Hicks then. I got real feelings of tightness all round my bump on quite a few occasions tonight sometimes coupled with a tingling sensations in my nipples and a ilttle bit of leaking fluid. I take it these are braxton hicks? I'm 29+1 today, so really don't want them to be anything else! I noticed that the babies were particularly active at the time and I wondered of this meant the were causing my uterus to be a bit more irritable, if that's the right way to describe it.

They've stopped now and I'm not having any more symptoms so I'm feeling less worried than I was earlier - in fact, although they were wierd sensations, they were quite pleasant in a way - the movements were hilarious too, heels and elbows and god know what else sticking out all over the place. Let's hope they go to sleep soon and I can get some rest.

Hi Roxy,
Tightening of bump sounds exactly like Braxton Hicks. The golden rule is it should not be painful, it can be an odd sensation but it shouldn't hurt (if it does, they could be real contractions and you should ring the delivery unit).
And lots of ladies do start to leak a little bit of milk in the in the third tri too. It sounds like your body is doing all the right things and getting prepared! : D

Hi Roxy

Hope everything is ok. Does sound like Braxton Hicks.

I got a lot of Braxton hicks in my first PG from 24 weeks, this PG it's been much sooner, earlier than 16 weeks I'd say. In this and my last PG they make my tummy go all lop sided on the right!



Aww, and bless seeing all those body parts, I can't wait for that in this PG :D

I had Braxton Hicks from pretty early on in my pregnancy too, probably because Annalise was a big baby.
I also noticed too that when she was active that it would trigger off Braxton Hicks.
I used to get loads of them all the time and even runs of them - I would have an hour where I had about 6-8 coming every 5-10 minutes and that really scared me. However, knowing what I do now, it was defo Braxton Hicks and not labour. They could be quite uncomfortable sometimes and even stop me in my tracks but they were totally different to labour pains.
Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy, you must be getting more excited to meet your two little ones now,x

Well, I've not gone into labour yet so they must be BH!!!

Thanks for all your replies. It's good to know they can start really early.

I started having BH at 30 weeks. They are uncomfortable and I get 4-5 a day. I think bump feels amazing during a BH and both babies seem to move a lot during one :happy:
