    The only time I notice I'm having them (and I have them regularly according to the montior I had in the hospital earlier this week) is if I put my hands on my stomach and feel that it's really tight.

    Had them really bad last night and they were coming regular i started to time them they were every 10 from 9 till 3 am. Then they stopped i really dont understand what he's trying to do. Thanx for replying kind of feel reassured as i have been told it's worse with your second baby and jodie was only born 18+ months ago. Thanx again
