    • I’m not sure how well it is working, because I am still getting lengthy Braxton Hicks, but I guess they are closer to ten minutes than 30 this week,
      so that’s something…

      I’ve also read that a full bladder can contribute to stronger Braxton Hicks so emptying your bladder more often can reduce the strength and duration of them.

  1. Such a sweet moment.

    I had B-H like that too, especially with my first pregnancy. I’d basically have days when the bump was really tight, and other days when it was much softer. I was briefly hospitalized at 34 weeks for preterm contractions, and when they let me go they told me to drink lots of water. It definitely helped, and I hung on till 38 weeks before going for real.

    • I went a little early too last time around – 10 days early so a little past 38 weeks. I wonder if the lengthier BH are related?
