  • No, BH do not indicate actual labor being eminent. They tend to get stronger toward the end of your pregnancy. It could mean that you have been getting run down and are over exerting yourself. Try to rest more during the day and drink plenty of water.

    Good luck!

  • No it is is uncomfortable as all hell. I get them earlier with every pregnancy, and they hurt bad. Try to rest and drink lots of water, as being slightly dehydrated or over doing it can cause them to come up more often. GL

  • not neccessarily. if they go away after you change what you're doing (i.e. if you're laying down and you sit up and they stop) then they're bh. it doesn't mean you'll be going into labor anytime soon. you actually have contractions throughout the whole pregnancy, they're just not painful, and most women can't feel them. only those who seriously can't take pain very well can feel them. so no, it doesn't mean you're going into labor anytime soon.

  • Some people get them more than others, or at least feel them more than others. Generally, they come after activity, but you can definitely get them at random. Try to drink plenty of water, because being dehydrated can bring them on. Also try laying on your left side for awhile, as that is supposed to help as well.
