I also faced the situation..they are a kind of labour pains

Adiba Ali

these are just braxton hicks contractions. this is your uterus preparing. I experienced these contractions since 32 weeks and I delivered my baby by normal delivery at 42 weeks. so don't worry

I have felt Braxton Hicks since 22 weeks.. but these are not the same for sure.. my belly is rock hard with these

Akanksha

these are braxton hicks.. they will come and go n increase as ur due date progresses.. unless there is pain , which indicates labour, these will be painless but discomfort will be there.. don't worry, this is very normal and it's just ur body preparing for labour.. all the best :)
