I am 39 weeks and havent experience any braxton hicks. I may get it, just not know it. It seems like everyone gets it... Is there something wrong with me that I don't feel any? Anyone who doesnt feel it either? And, how does braxton hicks feel like? Your response is appreciated. Thanks!

I am almost 37 weeks and have felt only a few bh. I feel my whole stomach tighten like a drum. I expected bh to be cramping or pain. But I guess just the tight feeling is it. Some people say they got it early and often but I haven't, only here and there. Maybe yours are so slight you can't feel them. I am on bedrest currently but when I was walking dalily I would feel my tummy tighten so much it was uncomfortable, I was told that was bh.

Some women don't feel them. My wife didn't feel any of these false positive contractions during her pregnancy with our first daughter. I'm sure you are doing just fine if you are already that far along. Congratulations!
