Q:

i am 31 weeks pregnant...have startes getting contraction like feeling few times in a day. is this normal? I read about Braxton hick contractions..hoping it is nothing to worry about. I have no major discomfort or bleeding.

Braxton Hicks contractions are mild and sporadic which means there is no pattern. If the contractions have a pattern and they can be timed and they are painful then this could be pre term contractions and should be examined by the doctor.
