Hey there darlin, its great that you have made some positive changes to your lifestyle for the baby! If the dr says everything is fine start by relaxing!

As for the braxton hicks I didnt know I was having them until I had a non-stress test done and the monitor showed them... If you are active its much more difficult to notice the small ones... but as you get closer to your due date, the BH's will get stronger and will feel like menstrual cramps until its the real deal... But with this LO I have been feeling BH's since like 24wks!

What you should expect is unpredictable because each woman and pregnancy is different. With DS1 I don't remember losing my mucus plug but woke up in the middle of the night with my water broken. As for lack of sleep, some nights I am so exhausted I sleep like a baby and other nights I toss and turn just trying to get comfortable! I didnt feel contractions with DS1 until after my water broke.
