I have been having braxton hicks a lot. I had contractions so bad at 25 weeks that my doctor sent me to the hospital. They had to give me a shot to calm my uterus and get the contractions to stop. If you are having around 4-6 within an hour you should call your doctor's office to see if they want you to be checked out. At this early stage of pregnancy you are better safe than sorry.
I've been getting em (braxton hicks contractions) since my 16th week im now 25wks 6days n theyre only getting worse but its completely normal my drs told if they get 2 bad drink some water (cus dehydration can cause em) n lay on my left side but if I have 4 or more in an hr for 2hrs straight then 2 go 2 the hospital
