  • I'm not sure what it is, I have it too. I'm 33 weeks and have been vomiting acid and having diarrhea along with the pains you say you are having. My doc says they are braxton hicks. If you are getting the pains in a pattern, or your water breaks...go to L&D otherwise just mention it to your doc at your next appointment.

  • I'm not really sure, but it sounds like braxton hicks. I freaked out and went to L&D and it ended up being braxton hicks. They told me if they become about 5 minutes apart and it's constant, then it could be labor and to go back. When I had the braxton hicks they were about 30 minutes apart and they weren't constant. Good Luck

  • You'll KNOW when you get your first real contraction but I'd be more concerned about the vomiting and pain for 3 days. Call your doctor tomorrow. He or she may want to see you right away.
