  • You should call your doctor. If they are too early they can give you medicine to stop them. They may also give you medicine to help the baby get stronger in case it comes early anyway. They may just be Braxton Hicks but it never hurts to ask your doctor.

  • If they aren't regular like every so many minutes, then you can try drinking some water and resting. Some times dehydration will cause you to contract.

  • I remember in our birthing class they told us one way to determine if they are real or braxton hicks. Do the opposite of what you're doing... If you're sitting down get up and move around, if you are up and moving, sit down and relax! Good luck, mama!

  • if you are not due and having contractions you should be calling your oB to see what he wants you to do. Even if it turns out to be braxton hicks you better safe than sorry and delivering early.

  • i went to the er for stomach pains at 16 weeks turns out they were contractions and the er dr was spastic didnt know what to do put me on bed rest i called my dr the next moring he told me it was common to have contractions all through out your pregnancy cause of the uterus growing some ppl just feel it more then others this is my second and never felt it with my first but now im 20 weeks everythings fine but still feel them! so i would call your dr to be on the safe side but dont stress to much
