  • Sounds like Braxton Hicks to me.

  • If you're really concerned, having more than six an hour, and they're regular, I'd call L&D or go in to the doctors office... I had no pain with my contractions until after my water broke. Be safe and good luck!

  • Sounds like contractions to me. BH are not usually regular, but rather eratic, and will change when you change you activity. None of mine hurt (I have 3 kids) until about 30 minutes before they were born, they were just really uncomfortable. Considering you are still early, I would go to the hospital now! They usually don't like you to deliver before 36 weeks. Good luck!

  • I had NO PAIN what so ever with DD. I would go to the hospital...its better to be safe than sorry. And if it is active labor you want to get it stopped asap. You will be one of the lucky ones with barely any pain with labor like I was lol. Best wishes, and a healthy baby! Congrats!!!
