  • It could be Braxton and Hicks contractions, get up and walk around if they subside, then chances are that what it is. Otherwise you could be in VERY early labor.

  • My contractions were like that until I was in transition(7cm) with my second baby. It didn't start hurting until then....and then it hurt like hell! Anyway, I don't know how far along you are or how far apart your contractions are. BUt I think the general rule is you should call your doc if your contractions are 5min apart or closer for at least an hour....otherwise it's probably just BH contractions. Good luck!
