Braxton hicks??

ok so i have a question i am 23 weeks pregnant with my second baby and today i noticed some uncomfortable cramps, they felt like menstrual cramps... i have no bleeding at all and the baby is moving a lot. With my first baby i never had braxton hicks contractions so i am not sure what they feel like. The cramping comes and goes so any ideas ladies? Thanks!

  • If you are unsure, I would take a trip to the hospital. The worst that can happen is they say it is braxton hicks. I had to do that when I was pregnant too.

  • Are they rhythmic such as they all last for the same amount of time? Or do they come and go?

  • Sounds like what I felt when I went into premature labor at 27 weeks. I would go see my doctor asap. Hope you and baby are just fine.
