Message length 300 characters recommended

Braxton Hicks contractions are contractions that don't cause your cervix to change. Real contractions will cause your cervix to thin out (efface), open (dilate) and get ready for your baby to be born.

Braxton Hicks contractions usually only cause pain in your belly, not your back. They usually go away if you lay down, rest and drink plenty of fluids.
