    Default 39 weeks increased BH?

    im 39 weeks and was just wondering what would be a "normal" amount of braxton hicks a day this late in pregnancy?
    im getting about 10-12 a day, totally random, no pain but it's diffucult to move when i have one, lasting about a minute. Then i have to pee after everyone of them, all the time.
    Did you seem to notice an increase of BH in the lead up to your labour?

    For me, I have HEAPS of braxton hicks, like all through the third trimester, then, about 24 hours before labour, they stop. It's like my body gives me a break, and my uterus has a rest before the real thing starts. But, that's just me. I know other people have said that they find they only start to get braxton hicks at the end of pregnancy, then they turn into labour.

    Maybe that's what will happen for you.

    I'm 33w and have been having so many Braxton hicks its not funny! Almost every time I touch my tummy I'm having one - its very rarely relaxed... I'm not sure it's not normal, but it causes me no end of discomfort (always tight and feeling like my movements are rigid because of them). I never felt them with my first pregnancy... I am so grateful to be having another baby, but so can't wait to give birth and not be pregnant anymore!!
