Braxton Hicks Lock Rss


This is my first pregnancy and I am due in 4 weeks. I don't think I have had any Braxton Hicks contractions as yet, well I haven't felt anything, and was wondering is that a sign that I might become overdue with the baby?

Is it possible not to get them at all?

Hi Em,
Thank you for your enquiry. You would have had some Braxton hicks contractions but you may have not been aware of them. Some women don’t notice them at all and some only feel their tummy’s tightening but no discomfort. Try not to be too worried, it sounds as if you are experiencing a nice healthy pregnancy and your body will know what to do when the time comes for labour to start.
Best wishes,
