I HAVE noticed significantly less contractions with my current pregnancy (due in 12 days!) because I have been purposefully drinking more water.

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!
I didn't realize that I haven't drank much yesterday in the afternoon, that might explain it.
No raspberry leaf tea but I'll get some. And yes I also remember about the glass of wine. This morning it seems gone, I'm drinking water and coffee and I'll try to remember to drink more during
The day.
