  • No I dont think so unless youre not drinking enough then dehydration can cause contractions. Make sure to keep yourself hydrated.

  • I had a cold right around the same time. Whenever I didn't drink, I'd get lots of braxton hicks. Just keep yourself very hydrated and take care of yourself. There is nothing more important than you feeling better right now.
