I feel like I might be having braxton hicks contractions. I am approximately 24 weeks pregnant, and they are mostly on my right side. Normal?
Could certainly be. Any time after 20 weeks the bhc's can begin. I've read that as early as 6 weeks they can start. But you need to get on top of them to distinguish them from other vague abdominal complaints. Have you had these pains before in your preqnancy? I believe a call to your ob/gyn is in order just to clarify.
I am 38 weeks pregnant and I am have braxton hicks contractions. I am also experiencing pain and burning on the lips of my vagina. Is this normal?
Not unusual. Braxton hicks contractions are normal tightening muscular contractions that occur at the fundus(top) of the uterus usually in the 3rd trimester. These contractions are not the type that move the baby out of the uterus. They are not severely painful and not associated with back labor or breaking of water. Labia pain occurs due to increased pressure in the pelvis from the enlarging pregnant uterus. Read more...
