Do Braxton Hicks happen earlier in a twin pregnancy?

Best Answers

My twin pregnancy was really completely different. The BH didn't seem indicative of preterm labour. I did have a shortened cervix at 30 weeks (2cm long), and I did dilate early (4-5 cm at 35 weeks), but in the end I didn't go into labour until 39w6d, so the babies went right up until term. read more

Braxton Hicks contractions are intermittent uterine contractions that start in early pregnancy, although you probably won't notice them until sometime after midpregnancy. (Some women never notice them.) They're named for John Braxton Hicks, the English doctor who first described them in 1872. read more
