Common Pregnancy Pains and Their Causes
The uterine muscles will contract (tighten) starting as early as the second trimester of pregnancy on. Irregular, infrequent contractions are called
contractions (also known as "false labor pains"). These are normal during pregnancy.
Try to relax
Change positions. Sometimes this can ease the contractions.
Call your doctor if they do not go away.
