Braxton Hicks at 22 weeks Lock Rss

Hi Im 22 weeks and had a pain in the groin area that lasted for about 2 minutes and then it happened every few minutes for approx the same time.Now this is my 5th baby and can't remember having Braxton Hicks at this early and I know that my uterus is stretching but they were very painful.Could you tell me if these could have been Braxton Hicks and do they come earlier with subsequent pregnancies?

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. You are probably much more aware of what is happening in subsequent pregnancies if you have had a few before. IF the strong pains continue you may want to see your GP for a check up to rule out a possible infection.
Best wishes,
Alex.
