What are cxs contractions?

I am 24 weeks pregnant, and the last few days I have been having what I think are Braxton-Hicks contractions. A friend told me about when she was pregnant how she had cxs contractions, so I was just wondering what that is, and how it is different from Braxton-Hicks? Thanks!

  • Maybe she saw the doctor notate it that way. When doing any medical documentation, you use all kinds of abbreviations, and cxs can be contractions. Also cancers and cultures, but likely this was contractions.
