Braxton hicks, every day, most of the day!

Is it normal to get what I am assuming is Braxton Hicks so much in a day, every day???

At first I thought it was babies pushing outwards, I never had BH with my first pregnancy but I have been told that it is Braxton Hicks.

I had them from about 30 weeks with my lo. They can be quite intense at times too can't they?
Have you mentioned it to your midwife? If they're worried about it they can hook you to a machine to monitor them for a few hours. They did this with me at about 32 weeks and said that mine were too powerful to be bh and gave me steroids just incase baby was coming.......but then i didn't go into labour until my due date!

Thanks Peppa. To be honest I haven't seen my midwife for a while because I was having scans every 2 weeks at Kings College Hospital. But had been thinking today that I should go to see her as I haven't had my urine tested or anything else and Braxton Hicks feelings are so regular.

I think I will call her now to make an appointment to go and see her xxx

Thanks Kirstin, I didn't know if I should be concerned as it is happening everyday and is very uncomfortable. As I never had them with Chloe I wasn't 100% x
