Try to lay down with your feet on a pillow you need to get comfortable and relax

Sounds like Braxton Hicks contractions they are completely normal. Unless they last for more then a few minutes at a time or start to hurt I wouldn't be too concerned. They are just practice contractions, your body is trying to get ready for the real thing.
