Mara-yes...it's a tight feeling that lasts anywhere from 30-60 seconds. You'll know what they are...they can get uncomfortable,but drinking water and changing positions helps. Practice breathing through them, that helps too. How far along are you?? Once they come regular,in a "wave" motion and more than 4 an hour..call your doctor :) Good luck!

That's normal. With my first pregnancy they started up at 26 weeks and I got tons of them, especially in the evening. This pregnancy they started at 20 weeks and have been coming ever since. Try drinking lots of water and moving around when you feel them often.
