Re: Braxton-Hicks Pains

I started feeling BH's around week 18, and am now 27wks. Definitely a weird sensation. Mine dont hurt, but sometimes if I get alot during the day, my abdomen muscles get sore. Everything I have read about how to manage BH's has worked for me. When you feel one coming on try taking a walk or start moving around, drink some water, lie on your side for a bit.. change up whatever it is that you are doing at the moment and they should go away.

 

sometimes, if your uterus is even a little under-hydrated, it can trigger BH's too. And no matter what they're called, BH's are STILL contractions so always stay hydrated.
