Pregnant, urine smells sort of sour, having braxton hicks contractions. Normal?

I am 34 weeks pregnant and over the last several days or so I've noticed my urine smells sort of sour and is very potent. I have been having Braxton hicks contractions for the last 4 months or so, some intense, some mild. Should I be concerned? It doesn't hurt to urinate or burn so I don't think it's a UTI, but what do I know. I'm not a Dr. Is this normal? The contractions vary from ever 3 min at times to every 12-18 min.

The sour smell of the urine could be due to the concentration as well as fruit intake. Please take plenty of water and the smell will disappear. If it still persists, you can get a urinalysis. Braxton-Hicks contractions are normal at this stage of pregnancy. Usually they are mild in intensity though the duration may vary. If you find associated pain in the back, along the thighs and excessive vaginal discharge, you should see your consultant for an advice. Please take rest in left lateral position. Wish you safe motherhood.
