Re: Contractions in the evening at 18wks?

I always get contractions around 20 weeks through the rest of my pregnancy. Each pregnancy is different.
I HAVE noticed significantly less contractions with my current pregnancy (due in 12 days!) because I have been purposefully drinking more water. Even though I already drank a TON it just wasn't enough. On stressful days I notice I get more too...but that could be in part to not drinking enough on stressful days.
My midwife told me to have a glass of wine if my contractions were pretty painful to calm the uterus. Have you drank red raspberry leaf tea? That might help too.

Good luck!
