  • I'm thinking if it is painless then it's just Braxton Hicks. Call your doctor to make sure. Usually they will tell you to go to the hospital when the contractions are 2 minutes apart.

  • Call your doctor. Regular contractions could be labor even if it's painless. Could be preterm labor.

  • If they are coming every six minutes or so and regularly, I would call my doctor.

  • Since you would be early I would go before the 2 minute mark.
    My BH were strong and most definitely there. They were more uncomfortable than actual labor. Early labor can feel like gas or even less.

  • I hope you checked with your doctor and that everything has turned out well.
