braxton hixs contractions D:

I'll be 19 weeks in two days and 3 days out of this week i've had braxton hix contractions. The first time it lasted ten minutes the second time it lasted 15 minutes and last night was the third time it lasted 5 minutes it hurts so bad i can't move everything tightens its breath taking i was wanna cry everytime i'm only 16 years old and i'm worries that i'm gonna have a premature labor later on or lose the baby sometime soon. Is braxton hixs contactons normal this early?

i get painful braxton hicks too that started at 17 weeks but not painful to the point that you're describing. i would definitely call your doctor or l&d asap. this could very well be a sign of premature labor.

That's not too early to get braxton hicks contractions but they shouldn't hurt,  and they shouldn't last 10 or 15 minutes.  They last usually less than a minute.  

With Braxton Hicks contractions,  if you are slender you can feel your uterus tighten by putting your hand on your belly - your uterus forms a hard knot but it feels like someone encased it in elastic and squeezed tight - it doesn't hurt.

I think you need to discuss this with your doctor.
