Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you suspect overactivity of uterus or excessive Braxton Hick’s contractions, you should consider going ahead with getting thorough evaluation done at the earliest to rule out uterine hyperactivity and confirm fetal wellbeing and viability. If needed, uterine relaxants would be started to help continue the pregnancy smoothly. Look out for danger signs like increase in intensity of abdominal cramps, increasing back pain, fresh bleeding etc. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet. Avoid lifting any heavy weights and avoid heavy work. Avoid standing for long durations and avoid climbing stairs. Avoid use of caffeinated and carbonated beverages.
Take care.
