    I have been having the same feeling. I have been told that it is BH, and that they are normal.

    Sounds like Braxton Hicks contractions to me. BH contractions should be quite sporadic, meaning no set rhythm. My midwife told me to call her if I get more than 6 in an hour. Being dehydrated can bring them on. If I notice I'm getting quite a few then I drink a glass or two of water, and they usually subside.
