  • my body cleaned it'self out and 2 days later i had my baby it's different for everyone your time is probably coming very soon if you think you are having BH more then 4 times an hr you should go to L&D they will tell you for sure if your having BH gas or real contractions

  • My MIL is a nurse and her advice for determining the difference is to drink a glass of water and lay on your left side for 30 minutes, if they subside braxton hicks if they do not or get worse they are contractions and contact your dr. You can also time them online at to see how regular and how close together they are!
