  • Welcome to the wonderful world of Braxton Hicks! Does it happen more when you've been exercising? (That's not the only time, but physical activity can bring them on.) Have a glass of water, lay down, and take it easy. They're perfectly fine, it's when they become regular and won't go away that you need to worry. If you're concerned, time them, and again, have a glass of water, and lay on your left side for awhile. Good luck!
