  • Sounds like they can be braxton hicks. As long as you are not having any bleeding and they are not coming faster and stronger they are just "practice" contractions. Drink lots of water, have a snack and lay on your left side and see if they subside. Otherwise its NEVER too late to call your ob. Just to be safe! Bol!

  • Also keep in mind that you can call to speak to a nurse at labor and delivery if you can't for some reason call your OB. Try the water and lying down. You could be dehydrated and that will make you cramp to.

  • If you are 30 weeks along you should know about your doctors 24 hour emergency line all OBs have one. This is the kind of situation it is for. If you are worried or don't feel right or have pains then you need to call them. They will ask you question to determine further if you are in labor or not. They may have you come to the hospital.
