I am currently at 33 weeks and I have been getting Braxton Hicks contractions, probably 10-12 times a day. Is that normal? It seems to happen more often when I'm moving around doing house work or something. I have been making sure I dont have them more than 4 times in one hour but I just wanted to know how many is considered normal in one day?

I don't know how many a day is considered normal, but I know that by that point I had many a day (some I felt and some I didn't) It was always worse when moving around and while shopping I would have to sit and rest to get them to subside. They may feel uncomfortable, but they shouldn't hurt.
