Keep Calm its only Braxton Hicks


Just this past week I’ve been feeling an intense muscle flex in my abs that lasts about 30 seconds at a time; uncomfortable but not painful exactly.  My Doctor confirmed today that it’s Braxton Hicks Contractions.

So weird to experience them and to try to anticipate what active labor contractions will feel like!

Also I’ve gained 3lbs and tested negative for Strep B so that’s really good!  Keeping weight, let alone gaining weight, has been a struggle this entire pregnancy.   I actually weigh less now at 37 Weeks than pre-pregnancy.  Ace is measuring perfectly though and has 151 heartbeats per minute!
