    I was having them daily at about 35 weeks, sometimes 2 or 3 in a row. Still get them most days now but not quite so frequent. I am so uncomfortable as well and can't imagine bump being able to get much bigger. Being heavily pregnant in this heat doesn't help either :-( xx

    Ahh yeah it's totally normal huni x I've had them since 14 weeks and they drove me mad at first, now I have them really regularly almost every day and I'm just like "turn into something proper!!!" Haha! Apparently drinking lots and keeping hydrated can help if they're becoming a bit strong sometimes. Xxxxx

    Unfortunately yes! Some people get them all the time others never get them. Just your uterus practising what it has to do to get moo out, baby moving around can also trigger them :) xxx

    Aah you'll cope just fine Positive. Obviously contractions are worse cos they're painful as well but as long as you try to keep relaxed and breathe through them you'll be just fine. I've been trying to practice my breathing and imagine nice calming things, such as sitting on the beach in the warm sun listening to the tide comin in and out, waterfalls, things like that. It might sound silly but the more relaxed you can be the better the experience and the better you will cope xx

    Yeah my bump goes rock hard and I just have to stop what I'm doing and let it finish. But they are nothing compared to contractions! Yes they're painful as hell but I think the knowledge that it's your baby making its way out keeps you going. Labour for me seemed to just blur and altho it was agony, the adrenaline and excitement definitely helped disguise it! You'll be fine huni, the labour is the part that's actually exciting me the most! Xx
