    Hello...

    my mum and dad came and helped us today and we have got soooooooo much done in the house. Room to be nursery all cleared out and loads taken to he tip...and i mean loads!!! our bedroom all changed over and cupboards cleared etc.......so basically the nursery is now ready for decorating and then Boo Boo's new furniture...

    I feel a little less suicidal about it all now and i can see that we are getting sorted.......dunno what i would do without my mum and dad and hubby...

    but oh my god near the end i was gettign constant braxton hicks....think my body was definitely telling me that i had done enough and to sit down!!

    so now i am sitting down and it is going off a bit, but still getting tightenings...

    anyone else get this when they do anything 'active'?

    xx

    Yes I get this all the time if I do too much - a soak in the bath should help :)

    Yeah. I've not had it too much recently, but basically cos ice been lazy. Lol. But I looked up BH's a lot when mine first started, cos they were so sore, and exercise is one of the triggers.

    Totally normal!! Only need tonthunk it's otherwise if it's a pattern. My MW did say if it continues for a long time to give them a call - but didn't specify what qualified as a long time. Lol

    know the feeling too I get them a lot and sometimes dont even have to do anything can be relaxing. Sounds like you had a productive day though with organsizing the nursery and your room XX

    Yep if you do too much it can start pretty strong bh's. Also if you havent had much to drink today with being busy that can make them quite strong xx
