When I get a BH, should I stop walking?

I'm 7 m. prego, and on my morning walks I frequently get braxton hix. Usually not painful, although they can get a little intense. When I feel one, should i take a break, or is it ok to keep walking?

  • It sounds like a sign to slow down or stop. Be sure you're well hydrated through the day and definitely before heading out. If you're on the cusp for irritating your uterus then walking might be pushing you over the edge.
    See if fueling up on a lot of water is helpful and see how it goes.
