  • Braxton hicks are totally normal. They can be more painful for some women more than others. Make sure you are drinking lots of water, and get some rest. As long as they are not coming regularly (every 5 minutes lasting for 1 min for an hour), then you should be fine. But, never feel embarrassed to call the doc if you are feeling unsure :)

  • Try sleepy time tea... with my last baby i started having them a 4 months and a friend gave me this advice that she got from her midwife. It was wonderful advice and I drank so much I wanted stock options in the But keep your doctor informed because if they turn real you will want to try to stop going early at least for a few more weeks also slow down and take it easy.
