  • As long as they aren't 5 minutes apart and can be gotten rid of by either drinking water or resting then you have nothing to worry about. Good luck momma!

  • Also if they aren't consistent and aren't intensifying you are probably fine.

    I remember both Braxton Hicks and real contractions. When the real contractions hit I just knew it was time.

  • I had Braxton Hicks all threw my pregnancy, and one time I thought I should go in, so I did, and they just sent me home. When the real contractions came I knew it was time.

  • Have you tried drinking some water and relaxing? A warm bath may help too, throw in some epsom salts if you have them.
