Google braxtion Hicks Co tractions. More than likely that is what is happenin. Or period like cramping due to your body stretching.
Trust me, you'll know when you're getting real contractions
If your contractions hurt GET CHECKED! Braxton hicks are NOT supposed to hurt, they are uncomfortable not painful. I've had 2 premature births because of people saying "oh it's just braxton hicks you'll know when you're in real labour" one was stopped and one wasn't. Both times the hospital and about 8 midwives told me braxton hicks are not supposed to hurt
If they have you worried Hun go get checked. Keep us updated.
I had braxtion hicks with my 2 pregnancy, starting from 26 weeks on, and they hurt. I'm just saying if she was in that much pain, she would have called her dr first instead of asking non drs for advice
