  • Usually.
    Probably.

    Just to be safe~ since your instinct has you investing energy in thinking about it at all:
    do what you can now to take good care of yourself-- hydrate, nourish, rest-sleep, do what you can to calm and soothe.

    Good luck!

  • Well that can be very normal.
    But I also know that was how my labor started with my last (spontaneous) labor.
    NOT to worry you at all, it is normal to feel stuff.
    But I certainly do value our intuitive abilities!
    If you can, try to remedy yourself.
    If it becomes stronger or more intense, note the frequency and consider calling in if it seems close (like labor contractions).

    Best wishes!

  • Best thing for you to do is Call ur OB ...... But U may be dehydrated. That can cause cramps and pain down in the legs and groin. It could be braxton hicks, or it could be labor. You never know unless u ask!! Goodluck and I hope u feel better!!!
