    Default 29 weeks and lots of braxton hicks?

    Im only 29 weeks but today have noticed ive had alot of braxton hicks than usual. They are sporadic, not painful yet intense but do stop me from doing what im doing for a moment untill it's gone. Seem to happen when im active/vaccuming/bending down/cleaning up after dd!
    Would it be normal to experience more braxton hicks at this stage in pregnancy? bub's is very active in there.
    It's not a sign of impending early labour or anything is it? Bub's head isnt even engaged.
    Any advice? Thanks

    Perfectly normal. Never had a single one my 1st pregnancy and this time around I'm having heaps. Just make sure you don't have more than 4 per hour each hr. Apparently it can get quite painful towards the end

    I am also 29 weeks & have been getting loads too. This is my 2nd pregnancy & I don't really remember getting any with my first.

    They are getting a bit uncomfortable now, it feels incredibly tight & a bit achey, & I would say I get at least one an hour - more when I'm doing something active like bending, walking for exercise etc.

    Middie said its all good as long as they aren't painful and/or regular, as in regular contractions.

    I'm 27 weeks and I find if I have done anything active during the day, like going for a walk, I get them for hours.
