Im Gonna Be Pregnant Forever!!! :'(

I dont think ive ever had braxton hicks contractions and im 37 weeks pregnant.......Is that normal? I had a Dr. App. On wed. And I wasnt dialated or anything but the doctor said I can go into labor anytime.....I know that a braxton hick contraction makes ur tummy feel hard and thats never happened, my tummy is always really hard. Sometimes I think im having a braxton hick, but it turns out the baby is pushing really hard on my tummy. Usually this happens when im getting up off the floor from kneeling at my locker in school or when im just walking...Is this normal not to have the braxton hicks and be 37 weeks pregnant????

Yes, by 37 weeks at least, usually before then. Hoping it will all be over soon for you.

Some women never experience braxton hicks.

Thats true, my first son--none.


But my other 2 I had them forever, like 2 months or more.

I thought she was asking if it is normal to have them by 37 weeks. But she was saying she hadnt had them--my mistake. It is true some pple never have them. Then some pple only with the first, and some pple not with the first. Like me
