    Is that braxton hicks ?

    I'm not sure, I get all types of pains and cramps. If you worried then there's nothing wrong with calling your mw or gp for some reasurrance

    Yes, I have had the same thing off and on since last week. I'm not too sure, but I am thinking that it is just the belly growing, with ligaments stretching and then others have said that maybe I havn't been drinking enough water. But I have a Dr. appt. this week, so I will run it all by her but I think it's normal :thumbup:

    I ended up calling my doctors office & told them I'd been having abdominal cramping since 6 pm yesterday & they told me to go to labor and delivery. I went there earlier today & was put on the monitor and had some tests done including a urine test which showed trace amounts of protein & I also had high blood pressure so I was sent home with a diagnosis of pre-eclampsia... :/ I'm not too worried for now. They are having me do a 24 hour urine collection test & hopefully that will bring more accurate results to know how severe my case of pre-e is. I'm glad I went in though, this just goes to show that it's always better to be safe than sorry.
