  • You haven't done all of the recommended reading, have you?

  • Call your doctor. Better to be safe than sorry. You could be in preterm labor and your baby would be in danger if you have him now. Call your doc and see what he says.

  • It could be braxton hicks, but just call your OB in the morning, now if it is painful as in 7-8 out of a 10 and coming at intervals, then you might consider going to the ER.

  • Yes, but call your doctor. If you are contracting prematurely they will want to stop them.
