    Default Contractions?

    So clearly this is a question for my OB who I will see on Thursday, but I'm wondering what your experiences were with contractions. Every time I swim, have sex, or just walk around the block, my belly tightens up for a couple of minutes in what I assume is a contraction. It doesn't hurt, but it feels weird and it makes me want to lie down and rest. I guess I don't really know what I'm feeling and it seems so early to feel contractions. Did you have similar experiences?

    Not too early for contractions at all. Definitely sounds like it's braxton hicks. I had them worse through the middle of my pregnancy than at the end!

    Yeap it sounds like BH. Whenever you get them you are supposed to rest and drink lots of water to help them go away.

    I didn't have BH with DD but I did have them with the twins. They told me they are more common in subsequent pregnancies and in multiple pregnancy's.
