  • Has your dr mentioned Braxton Hicks pains? Perhaps that is all it is.

  • BH if they don't stay... my last preg. when I started having "period cramps" I was already in labor... they just got progressively worse until I couldnt take it anymore (2 min apart)...So when I started having them this time around, I got excited!! Turns out... I've been having them off and on for 2 weeks now. They will be STEADY for an hour... then I go to get ready for a trip to L&D - they stop. Stupid BH.
