Hmm

I wonder if these contractions I'm having right now are braxton hicks, or if they're just tiny real ones...

If by now you don't have a baby, then they are probably braxton hicks. But if there's a little baby Sharya crying right about now, you should maybe have gone to the hospital.

*wink*

Ahh... didn't know that. I figured it all started once you soaked the carpet. Bad TV!!! BAD!!!

While I realize this, I had never actually come out and said it/admitted the possibility to myself.

That idea really scares the shit out of me lol!

Meh, the doctors here just tell you to come in. I'm ok though.

if they dont get stronger or closer together then they are probably braxton hicks. never hurts to call the dr and ask though!

good luck hunny. (and if they are real i'll be soooooo freakin jealous!!!)

Looks like just braxton hicks. It's funny, they got way closer together, but didn't get much stronger... and then they got further apart. Odd eh?

Apparently warming up my uterus for the real thing. He needs to get out though!

Even if they are braxton hicks, it's a sure sign that youre getting closer to having that baby. Wheeeeeeeeeee!

I know... this was a little dose of reality that I wasn't expecting!

Is it safe to ask what Braxton hicks are?

That is the name of false contractions. Apparently in the last few months or so before a woman goes into labour, the uterus takes a few practice contractions to kinda "warm up".

A lot of times the "warm ups" are thought to be the real thing.

I'm just glad they finally stopped and I could sleep!

Ok I managed to read that without having to wince or cover my eyes with my hand!

I'm glad you could sleep, take care.

I had regular braxton hicks for about 3 weeks before 8yo was born.

You'll know the difference... ;)
