  • Sounds like Braxton Hicks to me. My BH cause me to feel a little crampy while they are happening and my stomach gets tight and then losens back up again. They usually only last about 45 seconds though

  • It is common to have contractions ("Braxton Hicks") throughout pregnancy. It sounds like you could be having those.
    When are you due?
    How long have they been like this?

  • For an hour or two or all day or... ?

    Be sure you're hydrated, well-nourished, rested, not stressed. Do what you can to take care of yourself! :-)

  • when this happens make sure you are drinking tons of water that will help them slow down..
