Around 9:02pm I started getting what felt like a period cramp. It would ease up, and then came back. It went on like this until 9:14pm. Then around 10:38pm, they started again, same thing happened, and lasted until 10:46pm. Around 10:44pm they started going for the back/hip area on my left side. My mom never experienced Braxton hicks so she told me to keep track of them and make sure it isn't early labor. I'm 33 weeks, 3 days. Are these Braxton hicks and is there any way to relieve them because I am not good with pain and these hurt >.<
Re: Are These Braxton Hicks?
Another telltale sign of BH is that they can happen from overexertion and/or mild dehydration, where as "real" contractions can come on at any time and don't go away if you take a breather. But again, BH would not be painful. <b>If you are hurting, Please Call.</b> ❤️
What she is describing does sound like Braxton Hicks, but I highly encourage OP to contact her office nurses line and talk to them to get a better idea of whether what she is experiencing is concerning or not.
