U will feel mild pain if it wud b initiation of labour...all d best

bloating is because of gas take few almonds when you whenever you feel noting and drink a glass of water you should feel the relief

Sporadic tightening of the abdomen which has no pattern and is relatively painless especially in the third trimester is Braxton- Hicks contractions. These are uterine exercises and are also called fake contractions as they have no action on the cervix.

thanks ishu bansal. thanks prithvi. feeling lot relieved now. I guess u girls are right it's gas only.

False contractions. Nothing to worry
