  • dont freak out!! i used to get tons of them!!! I had them constantly all day long! I was worried something was wrong too but nothing was. If they get consistent and feel like youre going into labor then yeah thats a problem. but other then that its no big deal!!! every pregnancy is different and she shouldnt assume that its a bad thing that you have them. so no worries! youre fine! you can always talk with your doctor about it too!!

  • Heh, if they are annoying you but you can't tell if they're getting stronger...then they're probably braxton hicks. I mean, unless you go through labor once you don't know that you'll KNOW when it's labor. and oh my, you will know.

    But I also went to the ER when I thought I was in labor...and they sent me home. Better safe than sorry, and the hospital staff won't mind. It's what they do, ya know? ^_^ Always go to the doctors to make sure, don't wonder if you are bothering them...just go ahead and call.
