Jenna Dewan is experiencing “Braxton Hicks.”

The actress and dancer, 43, who is currently expecting her third baby (her second with fiancé Steve Kazee) shared snaps of her bump on her Instagram Story on Tuesday.

In the first photo, Dewan revealed that she had been experiencing Braxton Hicks, which according to the Cleveland Clinic are contractions felt during pregnancy. Often confused with real labor contractions, they're actually the body’s way of preparing for labor.

“Braxton hicks & @skims,” Dewan’s caption read as she smiled at the camera while wearing a jacket over her Skims onesie.

She then shared a video of her doing pilates, which involved stretching one leg up and down.

“@physicalperfectionpilates my secret weapon forever,” Dewan wrote over the video.

Dewan is already the mother of daughter Everly, 10, who she shares with her ex-husband Chan -

ning Tatum, 43, as well as son Callum, 4, who she shares with Kazee.

The Step Up actress revealed in January that she was expecting baby No. 3 by sharing a video on Instagram of Kazee playing the guitar and singing while she laid in a bubble bath.

Flashing a beaming smile, Dewan moved the camera to Kazee sitting on a chair in the bathroom as he sang. "Think if I make @stevekazee serenade me every night the baby will get his voice??,” her caption read at the time.

Meanwhile, in February, the soon-to-be mother of three revealed that she and her fiancé were setting a wedding date after getting engaged back in 2020.

“We’ve been engaged forever,” Dewan said on The Jennifer Hudson Show. “We got engaged and then there were so many life things that happened…  All of a sudden there was COVID-19 and the pandemic and home and then baby number three. So we kept pushing this day.”

“But now we really are wanting to and really are setting the date and getting it going,” she added.
