Braxton Hicks or Gas cramps?

I'm 28 weeks and 4 days into my second pregnancy. My first pregnancy I had a scheduled c section at 39 weeks and never had any kind of contraction, braxton hicks or gas pains. I've been having cramps here and there over the last couple days that feel like menstral cramping are these braxton hicks or am I just experiencing gas cramps? They only last a couple minutes and are sparatic thru the day.

  • Its different for me because I didn't have any with my first one. I didn't know if this was early to feel them or not.

  • More then likely braxton hicks...They can start as soon as 20 weeks in some women :) Although I would still call your doctor because cramping like that can also a sign of bacteria and other infections(bladder, UTI, and so on...) down there :)
