I’ve been having Braxton Hicks since around 20 weeks. They’re mostly annoying and just started getting painful in the last week or so. Last week I even ended up in labor and delivery because they were getting closer and closer together and I was having trouble talking through them. They were just hefty Braxton Hicks.
Last night I was sitting in bed reading with the hubbs and had a REAL CONTRACTION.
Oh my gosh- I had no idea what I was in for. I thought the Braxton Hicks were painful. I seriously thought I was going to cry… and I only had ONE!!! It was HORRIBLE!! I know I know, labor is going to hurt, but with all the BH I’ve had- I thought I’d be more prepared for what contractions would feel like.
Turns out- I was clueless. I can’t imagine what it will feel like when they’re coming close together. Bring on the epidural.
On a happier note- I am super ready and excited for Miss Bailey to get here!!! Bring on the crazy painful contractions! LOL.
