  • Braxton Hicks. They happen all throughout your pregnancy, and this being your second one, you're just more apt to notice them.

  • I'm thinking braxton hick's as well. I had one at around 22 weeks as's nothing to really worry about, but it doesn't hurt to let your dr know.

  • I think you should check with your doctor just in case. 22 weeks isn't considered viable outside the womb so definitely check it out if you're concerned. You don't want to take chances with that.

  • i agree because with my oldest i started going into labor at 21 weeks and was in and out of the hospital and i had her at 32 wks but she is amazing and has no health problems at all
