Braxton Hicks is what comes to my mind. Also it could be constipation. If you are having a hard time with that.

As long as theyre not severe cramps my Dr said those period like cramps are normal. I got them alot with my first and she said its basically just the uterus stretching to make room for the growing baby. if they get bad call ur Dr but otherwise just try to take it easy

I'm resting for sure. Gage isn't liking this at all.. barely moving. Normally he is rockin out non stop. This is my 15 pregnancy, but 2nd that has made it this far.. hence my worries. I took a Tylenol. Hoping they don't gey worse again

I have them often from about 12 wks on with each pregnancy. If your really concerned I would call your OB. Over the weekend you could try increasing your water and see if it helps, as dehydration can cause contractions. Its possible its Braxton Hicks, which aren't concerning. Definately if they get more frequent or more painful get checked out!

They were pretty strong but not consistent. Even worse when standing. :(
