  • Do they hurt? Or are they just uncomfortable?? I started getting A LOT of braxton hicks starting at about 4 months pregnant with my first. I got like 10 an hour!! But they never hurt. They were just tight and annoying....

  • I don't think you could be in labor for weeks. Not the "painful" kind that is... but if you are worried about this and in that much pain then I would say contact your doctor in the morning. Even if its for nothing more than peace of mind. As long as they aren't consistent you probably don't have all that much to worry about... but just to be safe I would call the doctor. I have never heard of braxton hicks being that painful.

  • You are probably dehydrated... that can cause "contractions" Try drinking alot of water and some orange juice and see if it changes
