Braxton hicks?

So ive been having braxton hicks all day long, about 2 or 3 every hour, they arent very intence, but last about a minuite or so, if they get closer to about 6 an hour should i go in, even if their still not very intence? Im 31 weeks pregnant.

  • I would call your doctor and see what they say. I've been having them like that for about a week now and I get about 2 -3 an hour. But they dont change (get closer together or stronger). But I'm also 39 weeks so if I go into labor because of it'll be ok. Since your only 31 weeks I would definitely call your doctor just to let them know and see what they say. They might want to see you just to make sure everything is fine.

  • I had this happen with my second and they just told me to sit down with my feet up and drink lots of fluids. If they continue or get worse call your dr. Although I wouldnt worry until they get more frequent. I am 20 weeks with my 3rd and get them often myself. Good Luck and I hope this helps
