  • they were different for every pregnancy of mine. if they don't get painful then that is what they are. just false labor.

  • Yes :-) You've had them all along but they're usually never felt until the uterus gets larger (i.e. 27 weeks. I started feeling them around then too I suppose). Some women never feel them. I appreciated my BH contractions because it gave me an idea of what real ones felt like when I started to go into labor. Same thing, just with pain (lots...of pain).
