Hi, Im 29 weeks pregnant and have already been having contractions! Im pretty sure they are just Braxton Hicks and not going into labor. When I was pregnant with my little girl 4 years ago I never really had contractions up until a few weeks before she was born. With my little boy that Im currently pregnant with now has been giving me lots of mid back pain here lately and some tightening in my upper stomach. But sometimes I cant tell if they are contractions or just the baby putting a lil bit more pressure than usual that may not be serious. When I have these back and stomach pains its mainly in my back and it lasts for 2-3 minutes and then goes away and sometimes my area "down there" hurts while im just sitting there. But my question is "Is it just back pain or is it contractions?" This pregnancy is completely different than the last one lol I just want to make sure my babys not gonna come too early. Anybody had the same thing round about this time of pregnancy?
