Braxton Hicks (BH)

I first heard of this name from an episode of the hit TV series, Friends. The one where Rachel was rushed to the hospital thinking that she’s in labour but turned out that it was only a BH. What are Braxton Hicks contractions? According to here, BH contractions are sporadic uterine contractions that start about 6 weeks into pregnancy, although you won't be able to feel them that early…(yada yada just click the link)



They say mothers will feel sharp pains in the stomach and it feels like there were tightening around the baby. Some also say that it is a painless contraction. But looking at the phrase ‘sharp pains in the stomach’, I don’t see any ‘painless’ in there…



Anyway Izza had’em last weekend..




And that indicates ‘the Day’ is nearing! Woohooo!

“Gentlemen, fasten your seatbelts; it’s going to be a bumpy riiiiiiidee!!!”

hahaha that's the one thing i miss from the pregnancy apart from the baby's movement. it's almost like period pain, perut tegang gila tapi ikut oranglah, ada yg rasa sakit ada yang tidak.

good luck izza, hope you'll have a good birth experience ;)

haha Ross kata, "oh it's just a mild contraction. most women don't even feel it at all"

kemudian Rachel jerit, "no uterus, no opinion!"

hahaha!

good luck, you guys ;)

waduh teringat masa aku kena BH, around 7-8 months, i was driving, terus automatik tertekan brek! bila difikirkan balik mmg bahaya.

labor contraction is worst, mula2 selang 10 min, lepas tu selang 5 min, lepas tu selang 1 min, haha memang sakit. habis banntal and bedsheet katil hospital tu aku gigit and tarik :P but amalkanlah baca ayat-ayat al quran, insya allah it does helps to reduce the pain :P

sakit contraction...hehhe....SAKIT TAK TERPERI. tapi masa pushing stage tak berapa nak sakit compared to contraction.

paling aku ngeri masa nak bersalin dulu bila kenangkan contraction selang seminit tu. wuiiii!!! baru selesai 1 contraction, baru nak kembang kempis bernafas, dah mai lagi 1 contraction. wachaaa.

good luck. utk sesapa yg bakal bersalin. baca laa doa byk2. dan jgn menjerit2 masa contraction. nurse tak suka. hihihi.
