  • I agree that it sounds real, but if you are only feeling them at night, it must be BH. During the day you are too busy to notice. How far along are you?

  • if they are speratic ones meaning they come an go then they are braxton hicks but if they last 1 minute with 3 minutes apart from each other then get your but to the er or call your ob those are real contractions!

  • if it's been 3 straight days i'd say it was BH but i'd talk to your dr just in case.. do they get harder or longer or whatnot... then they'd be the real deal..

  • Sounds like BH contractions. If you can move around and they stop. Or ifs you are moving and be still and they stop, they are BH.
