Braxton Hicks

Wow! We're 25 weeks now and Wow!.... I've never experienced such strong Braxton Hicks contractions!

Other surrogates who have carried twins -- Were your Braxton Hicks more pronounced than with singleton pregnancies?

(Yes, I can tell the difference between Braxton Hicks contractions and actual true labor.)


  1. For me not so much . . . although I'm also the person who thinks she just started labor when I find out the contractions are 2 minutes apart and I'm 5 cm already! LOL

    This time around I have noticed the contractions, starting about 32 weeks- been on medication since.

  2. Hi! Yes, I have been getting braxton hicks for a few weeks now (on and off) they started a lot earlier, and are a lot stronger! But if I lay down on my left side and drink a whole cup of water, they go away.
    Im also having very bad vaginal pressure, so bad I called the dr. yesterday, and I was told "oh, that sounds normal" oh gee thanks!
