I am 20 weeks today. This is my 4th pregnancy. My first two kiddos had to be induced because of no signs of labor. Third was a short short short pregnancy with a miscarriage. I never had Braxton Hicks with my first two. Today, on the other hand, is a different story. I started getting extreme pains in my stomach. I had to sit down because they were so uncomfortable and I have a high pain tolerance. For a while I thought it was because of needing to go to the bathroom pain.... but I already went this morning and I tried to go again but nothing... TMI sorry :(. The more I paid attention to the pains, the more I realized that they felt exactly like contractions. They would come and go in regular intervals. For now they have stopped. Braxton Hicks right?

Could be braxton hicks. Have you drank enough?

I've been getting them a lot more this time. 3rd pregnancy though. I suggest drinking a big glass of water and laying on your left side. If they are still happening in about an hour, call your OB

Oh yea definitely. I drink constantly throughout the day. No soda. Lots of ice chips all day long too.

I hope it works! I seem to start getting them when I've done too much. Like my body is warning me.
