  • It's awfully early but it sounds like Braxton Hicks contractions.

    Remember, when in doubt or when worried, call your doctor. They are used to panic calls from pregnant moms and won't think you are silly or a worry-wart.

  • I'd give your doc a call. I had this early on and they discoveree that I had an irritable uterus. I had to take medication to control it, but it was no big deal.

    You can never call your doc with too many questions, I put mine on speed dial! I didn't have much I needed, but it's very comforting to know that someone is there!
