Question: I am in my week 27. My tummy suddenly tightens like a rock and then after a while loosens up again itself. It happens many times in a day. Is it normal? Or are these BH Contractions or something to be worried about?

Answer: Now is a great time to brush up on the difference between preterm labor and Braxton-Hicks contractions. Braxton-Hicks contractions will be infrequent, and while they may come on suddenly, they’re generally gone almost as soon as they start. They typically last between 30 seconds and two minutes. There’s also no rhythm with Braxton-Hicks contractions, meaning they don’t continue to get worse or closer together. There are things you can do to help alleviate the pain from Braxton-Hicks contractions. You can change what you’re doing. For example, if you’re standing, lie down, and if you’ve been resting, get up to stretch. A glass of water may also help. Dehydration can bring on Braxton-Hicks contractions, so remember to stay hydrated. Keeping a water bottle with you can help you to remember to drink, even while on the go. Reusable water bottles are also a great way to keep track of how much water you’re drinking. If the contractions you’re feeling become regular, or if you start to see a crescendo pattern to the pain, there might be cause for concern. Pelvic pressure is another sign of preterm labor, especially if you experience pain on and off for over an hour. Any sign of preterm labor should trigger a call to your doctor. Seek immediate care if your water breaks.
