Braxton Hicks contractions


I don't know how is the Braxton Hicks contractions as i didn't experience this contractions during my first pregnancy. Chat with Prudy (AKA Allyfeel) yesterday, managed to know about this. Today i feel a bit of tummy tightness, but i don't know can it be considered as braxton hicks contractions or not. Anyway, will discuss this tightness with my doctor tomorrow.

Ya, i got another shock just now after i finished my bathe, i saw the blood stain on the towel i used. Then i used tissue to wipe over the area, and i saw blood again. What happened? This is the second time i saw the blood..

Huisia, you better go to the ob-gy fast as this might be signs of early contractions which mean the baby wanna come out. I had that too but at Week 35 so my ob-gy actually gave me a jab to slow down. Rest more until the bleeding stop.

Yes, pls see your ob-gy. Bleeding before term is something we need to take seriously.

Take it easy. Don't rush here and there..You're the second mom I know (as of today) who is seeing stain. When did you say your flight to KK is? I'm sure by the time I've commented you've seen your OBGYN already.

Hi Huisia, yes those painless contraction is called braxton hicks.. I got lots of those during my 3rd trimester. After a while (couldn't remember how long) it should go away. Within 1 hr sometimes have a few.

Are you too stressful lately or having constipation?? could the bleeding be after you have done big business?? any pain?? maybe you are just too tired... monitor and see how it goes.. shouldn't be a big problem. I also have once around 35th wk and thot I going to to give birth to grace. false alarm. just relax ok.. take care. if it really bothers you pls check with doc.

God be with you as you go thru these days with Jo and the little one in your tummy.
