    you are having Braxton Hicks contractions, you really don't need to do anything unless they are making you uncomfortable. If they are, try the following:

    Take a walk. False labor contractions often stop when you change position or get up and walk.
    Get some sleep or rest.
    Relax.
    Drink water.
    Eat a snack or small meal.
    Get a massage.

        It is possible to experience false contractions..they are called Braxton Hicks contractions, you can experience contractions without being in labor. If they are irregular and don't last long they are most likely braxton hicks. If they stay steady for a long period of time and increase in intensity then call your doctor. Make sure ou mention these to your doc at your appointment, if your really concerned still you can always call your docs office and ask to speak to a nurse she may be able to ease your fears before your appointment

            you will KNOW If something is wrong. U just will. I think at 28 weeks you're body is stretching, muscles expanding.
            I had shooting lower abdomen pains like a pulled muscle or a knot.
            But truly.. I think as moms we know when something's not right. Unless you're bleeding or constant cramping I really think you're body is really poppin out now.
