how long do braxton hicks contractions last for?

i know that their practice contractions.. & when i was pregnant wit my first born they didn't really last too long it lasted for maybe a couple seconds & wouldnt come back until HOURSSSSSS later.
but latelyy i feel like.. they've been contracting longer. last night i could NOT get comfortable if my life depended on it. the BH literally lasted 2 minutes every hour

  • Im trying to figure this out myself. Im 7 months and for the past 3 hours almost i've been having BH for about 2 minutes every 3 to 5 minutes. Not sure if that helps, but im experiencing it now.
