  • Truthfully its different, as long as they are not real contractions then you can have a lot

  • I would atleast call your ob and see what they say. I thought I too was only having braxton hicks but turns out they were true contractions and now Im on complete bedrest. So it wouldnt hurt to atleast let your doc know what is going on!!

  • i wouldn't think 5 in a day would be an issue. if you have a few in an hour, call your midwife or doctor :)
