  • Hi sweetie. My last experience of pregnancy was 10 years ago so I don't know if I can help.

    I remember the more than usual discomfort and sick feelings towards the end of my pregnancy but I did start getting very strong braxton hicks with my fourth pregnancy which I would confuse with contractions.

    I remember being told that if the pain becomes more intense, consistant and closer together then maybe your are going into labour.

    Best thing maybe is to call a doctor or the hospital to describe the symptons in more detail with them

    Good Luck!!

  • I delivered my daughter at 36 weeks due to pre eclampsia and that was almost two years ago.. so I don't remember much. I do remember getting the Braxton Hicks a lot and feeling a lot of pain and discomfort from them. I was going to the toilet every 2 seconds once my baby dropped, so I believe that's normal. If you continue to be concerned about it, maybe you should call your OBGYN and describe all of your symptoms to him/her and let them tell you what they think it is. If they think it's serious, they'll tell you to come in. Good luck!

  • Could be braxton hicks ... my last pregnancy that started the last month.. But as the ER doctor told me when i showed up there 3 times.. If in dobut there is always a hospital ;) also one of the visits it was false labor becuase i was dehydrated. If you feel that you maybe in labor i would go to the hospital.. i guess i am just scared like that ;)

  • I feel the same way and i am at 34 weeks. I have been to the hospital with horrible pain and awkward feelings also. The one time was from being dehydrated and sent me into have braxton hicks. The second time that I went, was because of braxton hicks again, but they stopped the contractions because of how close they were and they were trying to prevent me from having her then, i was only 29 weeks.

    So there is a very good chance it is braxton hicks, but as others have said, there is always the hospital. It's better to be safe than sorry.
