So I have had braxton hicks contractions for what seems like forever now, it really is starting to annoy me. I know that they are your bodies way of preparing but seriously how much preparation does my body need lol. Bring on the real contractions already!!
They have built in frequency, length and strength but still lead nowhere. I have found out from other people that it can mean that labour will be a little shorter as when the real contractions finally start they are more effective but I guess we will just have to wait and see.
The pains I have had with these braxton hicks are no joke. And it makes it so much more annoying that they are only practice and not actually helping to do anything, well not that I know anyway. I am going to be a sucker when it comes to the real contractions, no idea how I am going to cope!
I spoke to my mum about all the pains I was having and it seems that she went through the exact same thing when she was pregnant with me. Quite interested to know if anyone else found this with their mum?
Thanks for reading,
