Today I had my monthly appointment with my midwife (who I adore). While she was measuring my belly and feeling how the baby was laying, she asked me if I have been feeling contractions.
I didn’t have to think about it. No.
Well, apparently I was having a Braxton Hicks contractions that very moment.
So of course I have heard of Braxton Hicks contractions, but I assumed I just never had them because I never felt them. Looks like I was wrong.
What is a Braxton Hicks contraction?
So another words, your body playing mind tricks on you!
After she mentioned it, I told my husband. “Well, I guess I do get them. Sometimes I feel like my belly is tighter then normal. I just thought I eat too much!”
And when women say, how do you tell the difference between Braxton Hicks and real contractions…If you have to ask, they are not real!
Have you ever had Braxton Hicks Contractions?
