hello, i am a mum of three and i just wanted to share my story with other mums. For my first two pregnancies, false labor was only a term that i have heard. both my bubs were born early as well at almost around 8 months. with my third bub the contractions started around seventh month and we got alarmed, and ready for another early arrival. but instead of increasing, they faded away. i was so surprised, actually i didn’t remember there was such a thing as braxton hicks because me and anyone close or in family had not experienced it before. it happend the other day, and the other. and than i started realizing it was something that could happen in some cases. i looked up on the internet and found the answer…it continued for a month and disappeared, than just before two days of my due date it started again but it was getting intense…i first thought its back again but than i knew it was time…today i look back at that time and think how many things happen in our life, things we never have guessed or even wanted, bad things happen. but the important things is that everything turns all right at the end..

Post your story
  • i read about these in baby books


  • this story is good


  • I thought I was having Braxton Hicks contractions because it didn’t hurt to bad but I was actually in labour!


  • I remember with my fourth baby every little twinge or cramp i was worried and then when i actually went into labour at 37 weeks i didnt think it was real until the pain really kicked in.


  • Oh how exciting, hope everything goes well with the new bub


  • I’m glad that your baby arrived safely and you are ok : )


  • Thanks for sharing :)
