  • Talk to your doctor about them. Have you noticed anything youre doing that makes them worse or something your doing before everytiem you have them? Like having sex then going to sleep and waking up with them? Or walking around? Make sure youre drinking enough water, AT LEAST 40oz a day and shoot for 90. And if you have more than 6 of those in 2 hours your suppose to go to the hospital just in case.

  • i get them at least once a day either when im laying down watching tv or sitting crooked in a chair the most iv had in a day were 3 and they were 3 or 4 hours apart....i asked my doctor about them yesterday when i went in she said it was normal to start at any time in the second trimester but i didnt think they would start this soon :/

  • Did you talk to her about them in general? Or did you say specificly that you are having them?

  • First time I felt them was about 10-12wks. It was just one every once in awhile. Maybe once every other week I would have one.
