    Do you have pain in your back? More than usual I guess I should say
    Do the contractions hurt?
    How long are they lasting?

    I have no frame of reference hun but didnt want to read and run. Maybe call your midwife if you think they are contractions...?

    Braxton Hicks are usually not painful, and are not regular so they can't be timed. They usually ease off after an hour or two also. Sounds like it's the real thing! Have you spoken to your hospital?

    BH don't usually have a pattern so it might well be the real thing!x

    I had BH that could be timed and that were agony...

    But i think if they last and get stronger then they are the real thing, when i asked my mum she just said you know because it lasts forever ha ha!! So i'm guessing when they start to get worse then they are the real deal!!

    :dust:

    Hope this is it for you!!

    Ya, I agree, BH can definately be timed, and they can be regular too, but they do usually stop after awhile. They can also be painful, also make you feel ill etc... Its a big lie when people say they dont hurt haha

    If your worried then you should call your doctor though to be sure.
