  • if you can't walk around or talk they are probably real contractions. braxton hicks will go away when you lay down, walk around, or drink water. i would mention it to your doctor, but its hard to say for sure b/c everyones perception of pain is diff so what would knock you to your feet may not mean anything to someone else, or it could be too much for someone else. try to lay down on your side, drink water and walk through them, if that helps than its probably BH if not call your ob

  • i agree with the other two. if they are too painful call your doctor. if its just uncomfortable then just sit down relax, lay on your LEFT side, and drink some water or apple juice or whatever you want really.
    good luck!!
    hope everything is okay!!!
