  • I really don't think what you were experiencing was a contraction but you need to contact your doctor or go into L&D to be checked either way because this is not normal.

  • call your dr. i had a lot of that stomach tightening during one pregnancy. they were in fact contractions, and i went into labor at 32 weeks. in the meantime, be sure you are eating enough food, and drinking enough water (2-3 liters a day), be sure you are getting enough rest and manage your stress well.
    good luck mama!

  • Those sound like Braxton Hicks - practice contractions. Call your doc if your worried.
