Sounds like Braxton Hicks to me. Sometimes they can be painful, other times they are just annoying. If she has more than 4 in an hour, she needs to call her on call dr.

Thank you ladies! Thats what I was thinking.. her doc told her to go in if there was more than 5 in an hour.. so far it went down to two... keeping my fingers crossed for her

Tell her to drink a lot of water and lay on her left side. Also tell her to keep her bladder empty. When I had to go pee and I didn't want to go then, I had a contraction.

ps i didn't have this with my other two, but this pregnancy it's a daily thing. i get out of bed too fast or turn or stay in one position too long and my stomach locks into a charlie horse.
