im 32 weeks pregnant with my first and i've been having braxton hicks contractions this past month now, a couple of weeks ago i mentioned my pains to my doctor and he examined me and said i was fine and everything was on track, and that i was suppose to be feeling that way. but lately these past few days have been getting pretty bad. i feel my stomach tightening all day and some kicking from the baby at the same time...usually i'd just disregard them but i've also been feeling a bit of cramps as well. however, not so painful and severe but i feel them and they are uncomfrtorable and hurt a tiny bit. im starting to worry because im not due for another 2 months. does this mean im going into labor soon? or is this just how braxton hicks contractions suppose to feel?

Braxton Hicks should not continuous nor should they be "severe" . You could be looking at preterm labor. If they are continuous then you should look into some form of medication to control them for another few weeks. Terbutaline is a good one. Good luck and if they persist call your OB again.
