    Hi Scoop-

    Braxton-Hicks contractions are common in later pregnancy.  There is no magic number.

    If you feel you are having too many, or you very uncomfortable during the contraction, call your OB doctor. They can do a fetal stress test where they monitor the contraction and the baby's heartbeat. This is a non-invasive test. They put a "belt" around your abdomen and it uses ultrasound waves to detect each.
