is it normal to have Braxton Hicks contractions all day?

I started getting these contractions around 11 or 12 this afternoon. I have them in my back more than in my front. I get a pain in my front once every few hours but have them in my lower back every so often... They're not regular and definitely not 5 minutes apart! Is this normal to have them this long? Or could they be real contractions just not in full swing yet? oh i'll be 38 weeks pregnant on saturday but im also measuring a week ahead
