  • i had this problem at the end of my seacond trimesteri went to the hospital and everything. it ended up between two choicesa kindney infection(when a bladder infection gets pushed back to your kidney) or a mussle spasm. theres nothing to help either because medicine for a kidney infection can hurt the baby and it dangerous to get pain medication for a mussle during your pregnancy also. i had to stick it out. i didnt sleep for like two weeks but the best help was a heat pack laid across my side so it could touch the front and back. and REALLY hot baths they say they can hurt the baby but just keep the majority of your tummy out the water thats what they told me.

  • it sounds like you are in the early stages of labor. call the hospital you will be delivering at and ask them about it. they will be able to tell you more about what to do.

  • Hello i'm not saying you shouldn't be concerned i case it gets worst but I'm on my six kid and due in 4 and ahalf weeks and my braxton hicks are like what you are discrbing and I know how you feel. I've been checked and they say theres noway I'm in labor. The best way t know is if they go away and stay gone for a while you can be pretty sure it just braxton hicks.
