Hi Alex,
Im now 31 weeks and i`m experiencing alot of braxton hicks contraction maybe every few minutes, is this normal??
They also told me that i have 60% girl in the ultrasound, should i take their word on this?

Sarah...
Answer: Hi, Braxton Hicks are a good sign of a healthy pregnancy. If they do become painful it is advisable to have a check up. Where only a 60% chance of a girl is quite low so probably the technician was not too sure so be careful with too much pink. Best wishes, Alex
