  • It could be some braxton hicks.
    But, it could also be that you are dehydrated. I would drink a glass or two of water and put your feet up. See if that calms it down. It is summer and pregnant woman can get dehydrated easily.

  • I had that with my last pregnancy. My doctor kept my on early labor watch to make sure the contractions weren't actually doing something... lucky for us they weren't. :) Keep drinking that water too, dehydration can cause early labor like cramping too.

  • Completely normal. They are called Braxton Hicks. They are practice contractions and you will feel crampy and in some pain more than likely.
