  • yea, they are probably just braxton hicks. they start hurting when you get to be about 34-35weeks. if you have more than 4 within an hour or your water breaks get to the hospital asap.

  • most likely it is the early labor stuff that gets your body ready but does not (necessarily) mean you will be having your baby any time soon. BUT i never had that until the night before my son was born, but i was also 41 weeks pregnant. so who knows!

    how many weeks are you? good luck!

  • i would say that if you have 4 within an hour go to the hospital unless you aren't 37 weeks yet. i would wait to go to the hospital until i was in active labor, but everyone's different on that issue ;)
