I'm 36 weeks and haven't had a Braxton hick contraction, or at least I don't think I have.... Would I know if I was having one? The only things I feel is a weird pressure/stinging/pinching feeling in my crotch area but onl6 if im standing or walking for a while, and sometimes a bad pain in my sides like near my ovaries if I stretch weird. I just don't know what a Braxton hick would feel like.

If it's your first you may not even realize you're having them.

I am 29 weeks and today actually i have been feeling the same thing. It feels as if the baby is trying to push herself out of me. It's really painful in my crotch area ,almost like it's gonna split open. This is my second child and i still don't know what it is...

With my first I had only a few...But now with this one i've been having them for 3 weeks! And trust me you would feel them..For me it feels like i'm going into labor and has even sent me to L&D a few times...It's normal not to have them or feel them...Feel lucky your not they are very uncomfortable!

This is my 3rd pregnancy.. I am 31 weeks and have been having them for about 3 weeks now. They are practice contractions, are sporadic and can last for a few seconds to a few minutes. Your tummy feels hard. They should be infrequent, irregular, and involve only mild cramping. If they seem to be more consistent and the timing from one to another feels closer, go to the hospital.

Ok so I must not be having any, is it still possible that I will eventually start feeling them?

'm 33 weeks with my second kiddo, and I haven't felt anything yet!!!! I never did with my first kiddo either! I think its just might be the luck of the draw I didn't get morning sickness with either of my kiddos either! And one was a boy and this one is a girl! So you may not feel it at all......Good Luck! :)
