    Default Braxton hicks at 19 weeks?

    Hi Ladies.
    I have been taking it really easy as I had bleeding from a low lying placenta and did some housework two days ago. Not sure if it's a coincidence, but that night I thought the baby was rolling around, but it actually felt more like tightening in my lower belly area.
    Last night at about 10pm I got them again, I feel them more when lying down and they seem to only happen at night. They are totally painless just very annoying
    It has been four years, I am sure I didn't have this with my daughter.
    Had a check up yesterday as I thought I was leaking fluid, did an external and internal ultrasound, and used a speculum, all was good. I mentioned this tightening and my ob fobbed it off.
    Does this sound like Braxton Hicks or round ligament weirdness?
    Thanks girls xxxxxx

    If you've mentioned them to your OB yesterday and he is aware of your history than I wouldn't worry, they sound like BH to me Of course if you are worried than a 2nd opinion will never hurt!

    It could be braxton hicks. I'm pretty sure I had them that early with ds1 and got them a lot especially when I was at work. With ds2 I hardly had them at all so I think they can def be related to activity.

    Hi Victoriaa,

    im currently 17 weeks and am getting braxton hicks for the last few days I really only noticed them at night, today I took more notice and found I was having them on and off during the day as well... I get a short sharp pain, they last about 15sec and are irregular...

    I actually called the midwifes tonight she said to go up to see them if I'm worried. But if there is bleeding, increase in intensity, discharge or increase in frequency to head to hospital.

    i think I feel better after speaking to them. I would still bring it up with gp again, make sure they hear you and speak to you about it.

    make sure you feel like your concerns are acknowledged and discussed
    good luck
