Gotta question

Okay so my stomach keeps getting really tight but I'm not really in any kind of pain. Could these still be contractions?

  • How far along are you? Sounds like Braxton Hicks contractions.

  • If they are early contractions (i went into labor at 33 weeks) you will know!

  • sounds like braxton hicks. just monitor them, if they are consistent in length and the time in between when they have them it could be labor. there are women out there that have no pain while in labor (wish i was one of them!!). Just keep an eye on them, time them and all that good stuff. if they keep happening consistently you can always call your doctor

  • probably braxton hicks contractions..... real contractions start in your lower back come around your side then go into your lower abdomen..... you will know the real thing. Wow. Somehow you just know!
