braxton hicks contractions.

I'm 30 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child and I am experiencing braxton hicks contractions. I know this is common but what I'm concerned with is that they are going into my butt and it feels like a light pressure. Should I be worried? I didnt experience braxton hicks very often with my other pregnancies.

  • Completely normal! The best thing to do is to stay VERY hydrated, take tylenol, a warm bath, and relax. It will all be over with soon.
