Is this normal? (Contractions and pregnancy.)

I'm 19 weeks pregnant.
I believe I've been having braxton hicks contractions for a couple days now.

They didn't bother me too much. But now my stomach is extremely sore.

It was difficult and painful for me to sit up in bed this morning.

I'm having a hard time moving because it hurts, and when I bend down, I can't breath good and it really hurts my stomach.

This is my second baby. I never felt braxton hicks with dd and didn't have these problems. So I'm just wondering if this is a normal/common thing or something I should bring up to my doctor.


My doctors office opens at 9. Ill probably call then.

I would go in and talk to your doctor about it. I don't remember feeling that with either of my pregnancies.

I'm probably gonna call in a bit. Movement hurts. Bending just slightly is killing me. I have a 16 month old as well. But i don't want to keep just moving and doing normal things if something could be wrong..

I did. But I had severe hyperemesis. I was in labor the whole pregnancy except when my water broke. Lol

I'd call.  I don't want to say it isn't normal, but I haven't experienced that.

Call the doc. It could just be your ligaments stretching out or something, but make sure it isn't something more. Good luck!

You need to call ASAP. That isn't normal, you need to make sure that everything is okay. Are you getting really sharp/stabbing pains?

Oh lord. I never went in to labor with dd. I was induced at 38 weeks. I'm a type one diabetic and my doctor didn't want me to carry past that point. At 38 weeks I wasn't dilated at all, hadnt felt a single contraction, not Ben braxton hicks. Y

No sharp stabbing pains. It's soreness all over and a dull throbbing in my lower stomach.

Okay. That sounds like round ligament pains, nothing to be worried about. I would still call just to be on the safe side though. We aren't feeling the pain so it is hard to say for sure.
