There contractions do they hurt ? If not there more than likely Braxton hicks

Yeah those are contractions make sure you time them and if you have more than 5 in a hour I would call your OB or go in ! But if you get up an walk around drink water and they go away or they are really irregular they are Braxton hicks

See if they can be timed. If they're regular and get more painful, it's labor. If they're erratic, they're probably practice contractions.
