It felt like cramps at first very low in my pelvis and felt like period cramps, than started being my whole stomach. They dont hurt, but are uncomfortable. Im pretty sure Im hydrated, I always drink water. Ive been relaxing all day,  nothing stressful.

They came at 3, 8, 2, 5, 4 and 6 minutes apart.

Im almost 33 weeks along.

Should I wait a while or call my doctor?

At 33 weeks, I would call.  It's better to be safe rather then sorry... hope all is well, and please let us know how you are!

If they stop, they might be braxton hixon but I would call if they don't stop soon.

I would think that since they're not like clockwork, exaact minutes apart, that they are just bh contractions. I had those with my daughter up until the day I actually went into labor. But if they do get to be about 4 or 5 minutes apart every single time, that's when I would call. Good luck momma!!

This is my first pregnancy, but from what i've learned from others so far is that if you get up and walk around and they stop then it's just Braxton Hicks....but if you walk arund and they don't stop..I'd DEF call the Dr, because they aren't more than 10 mins apart.....Good luck, and update ASAP!!!

To be honest I would call your doctor now. My doctor told me that if I had more than four in an hour to call. It's better to be safe. Doctors are on call for a reason and you pay them. If its just a false alarm atleast you can be at ease.

Ive had another contraction.

I called the on call number and Im waiting on the doctor to call me back. Its the same dr. that delevered my DD, and he has the WORST bedside manners Ive ever seem. :(

Ill keep an update on here.
