  • they are made worse by dehydration, so plenty of fluids.

  • I don't think so. Whenever I used to have them I would get in the tub to help with the pain.

  • I have the contractions but they are not painful, just strong pressure and achy. Sometimes I have to sit still and breath through them but they are nothing like the real labor contractions, so I think you are getting them stronger than me. I sometimes lay on one side and drink water. That seems to help. Good luck with the discomfort :)
