should i see a doctor about braxton hicks contractions?

i've been feeling the tightening in my stomach for about 2 weeks now and im already 28 weeks going on 29 but they have never been so close together before.. i've had really bad nights where i wake up hot and sweat, with a headache and dizzy spells n then the urge to throw up all at the same time. Should i be real concerned or should i check into a hospital? much needed help for a new mom.. thx!!

  • well those hot sweats and urge to throw up is actually acid reflux which is perfectly normal. if you wanna see a doc feel free. it would help if you mentioned how far along you are

  • I wouldn't go into and er or anything, just the next time you go in for a check up say something to your doc about it and see what his/her advice would be.

  • Play it safe and don't try to make the diagnosis yourself. If you haven't hit 37 weeks yet and you're having more than four contractions in an hour — or you have any other signs of preterm labor — call your caregiver immediately.
