Braxton Hicks and we're team....

PINK! I started having really odd cramps last night around 6pm and thought they would go away but around 9 I decided we needed to go to the hospital. I started having a lot of discharge the cramps were just getting worse and I was *sure* there was something wrong. After a full work up and u/s (where they told us that we're having a girl) the doctor says that I was having Braxton Hicks brought on by stress. When I got to the hospital my bp was 120/80 after laying down for a while and trying to relax it went down to my normal 95/45 and the cramps all but went away, the doc said that that pretty much confirmed Braxton Hicks. He said I just need to try and take it really easy and come in if they got really bad. He also so said that I needed to take a break from anything that I find stressful (quite a feat) and that since I'm having BH so early that I needed to really watch myself. Well, looks like it's going to be a fun 2nd & 3rd Tri...anyone else have Braxton Hicks this early?

I start having BH at 12 weeks which everyone said it wasn't possible but my OB said it's very possible... Having been thru the terror of hours from delivering a very very small 30 week baby left me hyper sensitive to them..
