  • if they arnt regular which it sounds like they are not they are more then likely braxton hicks those are practice contractions to get your body ready. I would tell your dr at your apt he may wana check your cervix to see if there is any progress.

  • You probably just notice them more at night since you aren't active. Sounds like Braxton Hicks.

  • You can have contractions like that for days or weeks before going into full labor. I would mention it at your apt, but I dont think its anything to worry about. Just your body testing everything out and getting ready for the big day.
