I am in week 20 and for the past week
The contractions arent regular at all and generally come on only when I try to go for my afternoon walk with DD in the pushchair. The only way to get my tummy to soften up is to lay down on the ground. I can do most other things and not feel them. This really bugs me since my daily walk is the only exercise I get now. Before getting pregnant i ran up to 100 km per week and I walked nearly 2000 km during my last pregnancy and had no problems at all. that is why i dont know why i should be getting problems this time around!
I'm monitoring the situation before going to the doctor because I want to avoid being told to lie down most of the day!
I could have written your post a few weeks ago.

Thank you so much for this reassurance and advice!
I know all of these things, but have to be reminded. I truly must drink more liquids. I tend not to drink much when not doing sport, especially now as I eat so very much fruit. I MUST DRINK MORE!!! Also, I do tend to go at
I started getting early contractions (I believe it was around 25 weeks tho) with this last pregnancy. I did not get them until the last month with my other 3 children.
I had constractions during the entire last trimester of my pregnancy (daily basis almost) and I was told as long as they were not consistent, I was ok.
That sounds exactly like Braxton Hicks. I remember that tightening well. Sometimes it did feel pretty extreme.
Mention it to your doctor, but I would not be overly concerned until you have reason to be so.
