I've been really stressed lately so it's scaring me that it might be preteen labor. It's my first baby so I have no idea what a contraction feels like

They are most likely braxton hicks, i get them too and im 32 wks :) they can last a few days and get quite painful, as long as they dont come within a few minutes of eachother and get more intense everytime you should be right :) drinking water, warm baths and lying down should help

I am only 23 weeks but last week I had period like cramps for the entire week. I talked to my mother in law who is a labor and delivory nurse and talked to my doctor. thwy both said to drink lots of water and that it was probably just the uterus stretching. If you start getting really bad cramps or sharp pain, go in!

They stopped after about 2 hours. I asked a coupleof ladies at work and they all said it sounded like Braxton hicks
