Braxton Hicks and Dehydration
By Barbara Parker, RN, ARNP, CNM

Q. I have been having some cramping these last couple of days, I am 31 weeks and have had trouble with dehydration and lots of Braxton Hicks contractions. Are the two connected?

A. Yes, one of the two most common reasons for contractions is dehydration. The other is bladder infection. Drink, Drink, Drink (anything non-caffeine) until you think you are going to float away!!!
