  • Braxton-Hicks ARE painful for some people, whether they're supposed to be or not. How long have they been going on? If you have a history of pre-term labor, I'd let your doctor know what's going on. They'll probably just have you continue to monitor them, but they know more about your body than we do! My doctor always told me to come in if I had 4-5 an hour consistently...

  • They have been happening for 2days. I just have been dealing with them.
