Arrrrgh!! I had braxton hicks with my first bub that turned to actual contractions two times with the 2nd time landing in hospital over night. I just cant believe they are starting this early. As soon as I rest they go away but if I'm up doing things or have to lift my 2 year old (16kg) they come back. My concern is these ones hurt. Well the ones in my last pregnancy hurt as well but I always thought of them as braxton hicks contractions rather than actual contractions.
Sorry for the rant, just find it frustrating.
