  • Yes, in fact a CM mommy that is 31 weeks went to the hospital last night because she was having premature labor. She is doing well now because they gave her something to stop the contractions. Call your Dr immediately, good luck:)

  • If they are irregular and don't follow any pattern, you might be having Braxton Hicks contractions.

  • well it's normal to have braxton hicks (false labor contractions) at 31 weeks, but if you are having them frequently you should mention it to your midwife or dr. :)
