so ive read and been told that Braxton Hicks Contractions dont make you dilate or efface.and that only "real" contractions do. but ive been having BHC for almost 3 weeks now. and last week i found out i was 1 cm dilated, and this week i found out that im almost 3cm dilated! [im 37 weeks] and my dr said "it looks like the contractions your feeling are working!" so what kind of contractions have i been having if im 3cm? im so confused. someone please explain this to me.
oh and another question. can you be 4cm and not be in active labor??
