I am 36 weeks and 3 days and so far through the whole pregnancy i've had no braxton hicks contracations. I was wondering when you have any contraction, real or bh....Does the baby move during this time, or not move at all while having contractions? I was in the store last night and got quite a cramp in my lower right side of my stomach, and not sure what it was. I was just at the dr yesterday and everything is going really good. Just wondering if I possibly had a bh contraction. Again today I was feeling crampy in about the same spot only this time the baby was moving like crazy. Is it possible she's starting to drop? Sorry for so many questions, this is my first pregnancy and I don't know what all to expect. Thanks!
Well i've had braxton hicks and contractions (to me the contractions feel like the bh only with pain) and when I get them I still feel the baby move. I am not sure what you felt was the bh or contraction but I don't know. Most likely you have had bh and you just haven't been feeling them. They're normally quite painless and they just feel like pressure but I have heard that some women never feel them (but they do get them).
Thanks for the replies, I still don't know what that pain was myself! I'm wondering if it wasn't just a cramp cuz the pain didn't go away like a contraction would. Haven't had it since. But now I know that the baby does move when you have contractions. For some odd reason I thought the baby was still when a contraction occured. I don't know why I thought that tho lol.
Thanks for your support joanna! The baby shower was yesterday and I never imagined we'd get this much stuff! We're just hoping it all fits in her room!!
My due date is march 8th, so yes we're getting real close now. Can't wait to finally see those little hands and feet that have been keeping me up all night! Take care!
Babys do get a lot quieter while in labor. Or maybe we just dont think about--or notice it as much. Maybe it is just an old wives tale. But I always heard that too--and one of mine especially--every time I had "bh" contractions he would completely quit moving. The other 2 I noticed while in true labor they didnt move much.
Wonderful on your baby shower--my kids would have given me mine--but since none of them are here--i guess I wont be having one at all. But thats okay. Once family knows the baby's have come--i will make up for it--i am sure!!
Yes, march 8th is really close now--feb short month too!!
