Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
These of and on pains at this gestation will eventually turn into labour pains
Just wait for them to progress and in case they increase in intensity and duration then visit ER as soon as possible but in case they subside on their own then nothing to worry as yet.
In case you have further questions you can consult me on health care magic forum and i will be happy to help
