  • could just b what they call braxton hicks fake contractions just your body getting ready for the real contractions or your baby's head droping further doing ready for birth but if you r in a lot of pain i would suggest getting checked out by the hospital

  • I had this alot during my second pregnancy. It is most likely braxton-hicks. If that is indeed what it is, it will probaby ease off if you lie down and elevate your feet, or lie on your left side. They tend to get worse with more activity. My MIL is a Certified Nurse Midwife and educated me alot on these things.

  • I had cramping. Midwife told me that I was to eat a bannana a day and drink have a glass of RED wine at dinner.
