  • I would say that they are braxton hicks contractions!! Its nouthing to worry about! Make sure that you are well hydrated My doctor said some times when your dehydrated that you can have more braxton hicks contractions!!

  • i'm experiencing that at 18 weeks and it doesn't hurt at all, i think its just my uterine wall working out. gotta be strong to hold a bebe

  • it could be braxton hicks contractions or it could be your uterus streatching as your baby grows.
