painful irregular contractions?

im 37 weeks and 4 days pregnant last night i was having bh contractions that hurt pretty bad, they were 6 mins apart for almost an hour. but then they spread apart and got less intense. and tonight i started having bh around 6:45 4 mins apart and about 45 mins into them they started getting stronger and stronger, one had tears coming down my face! but then they slowed down and got less intense again. but since then ive been having random painful contractions. they will be in a pattern for an hour or so then they'l spread out. my lower back is killing me, my belly hurts all over even when im not having a contraction. i took a walk that just made my back hurt more. this has been going on for 5 hours im so uncomfortable:( what is going on? am i going in to labor soon?

  • I would call your doctor and let him whats going on BH contractions can be very painful sometimes. He my want you to go in and get checked.

  • I agree, you may want to get checked just to be sure, you might be having back labor so your contractions seem irregular but aren't.

  • i do think it's normal. google prodromal labor. i do feel for women who have prodromal labor. it can be really frustrating and exhausting too!

    here's a link, and it has some good tips too. gl!
