  • sounds normal. Thats what happened to me for weeks before I went into labor. if they get about 4 minutes apart and stay consistant than you could be in labor.

  • It sounds normal. I had something called prodromal labor a month before I had my DD and only because she was c-sectioned for high blood pressure. i'm sure I would have made it to my due date with the prodromal labor. You can make sure your baby is in optimal position though and that might alleviate some of those BH. Go to

  • Most likely is normal. However I was having what I thought to be BHC's at 22 weeks, and had my son at 25 weeks. Now, I am overly paranoid!
