I am 24 weeks +4 days pregnant with my 2nd baby and for the past hour I have had consistant braxton hicks contractions at 5 mins apart. I know the difference between these and real ones but I didnt think the bh were ever supost to be consistant. They do not feel like they are getting stronger at all. Any opinions?

When I was pregnant with DD around 30 weeks I consistent BH for over 24 hours. They even checked and it just ended up being braxton hicks. I would call and let them know then see what they want you to do

I'm 29 weeks and get them all the time, even at my doctors office they timed them and they were about 7 minutes apart, but they never grow in intensity.

I get them all the time and did with my first but they have never been consistant or timeable. Im just hoping they will stop or atleast not begin to get painful. Thank you ladies :)

I hated hearing all the time that I wasn't drinking enough water because I felt like I was drinking plenty. I was having 20+ contractions a day and yesterday I made a point to drink 2 huge water bottles and then I only had 3 contractions. I also get them if I'm stressed or tensed.
