Hi ladies - I'm currently 32 weeks and from about 3pm this afternoon have been having much more frequent and more intense BH.
With DS1 and so far in this pregnancy, they only ever felt a bit uncomfortable and very occasional (maybe 1 or 2 a day).
This afternoon I had quite an intense one - and the first one that I'd consider to be painful (enough to make me stop and breathe through it, but not too bad). Since then I've have had quite a few (though I haven't been paying attention to how many/how often), but they haven't been as painful as that first one.
I know many other women have painful BH for weeks/months, but just wondering if others have experienced the sudden increase in both frequency and intensity. Is it something that comes and goes?
My DS1 came 5 weeks early after my waters broke unexpectedly, but even then could barely feel the contractions until hours and hours later (although they were monitoring me and kept telling me I was contracting), so I find it very hard to compare.
