  • Many moms get dehydration contractions-- sounds like that. Can you try to drink a LOT of water, eat a healthy snack, sit down for a bit and see what happens?
    Then you might try a bath/shower if they're still coming on.

  • Labor started that way for me both times. You might want to call the doctor just in case since you're a few weeks early.
