Staying Comfortable with Braxton Hicks
Some women find that Braxton Hicks contractions are really uncomfortable. If your Braxton Hicks are bothering you, try some of these suggestions:
Drink lots of water. Dehydration can make your muscles spasm, bringing on a contraction. Avoid caffeine.
Practice your labor breathing techniques. Rhythmic breathing will help to alleviate your discomfort.
Lie down on your left side when you have a contraction. This should help to ease the pain and keep you rested.
Change the position you are in or switch activities for a while when you have a contraction. A slight change in movement sometimes make the contractions disappear.
Urinate when you need to. A full bladder can sometimes trigger Braxton Hicks. http://www.epigee.org/pregnancy/braxton_hicks.html
