Well non of my braxton hicks have been painful so sounds like you made the right decision calling the doc adden. I had heaps yesterday ( was just finishing 3 days of carpet cleaning). Have found they become more frequent and intense the more active I am, is this the same for you?
Question for all those mums not having their first baby, do you think you will go earlier than previous pregnancy? Heard that most do but my friend who had her 3rd went over her due date.
