Could this be the start of labor?

I have had bad braxton hicks for over an hour about 5 minutes apart or so. Now they are spreading out a tad. I am 37 weeks and 4 days. I also feel a ton of pressure when I stand up and walk around for awhile. I had "fun" with the hubby earlier today and ever since have felt a tad different. Any thoughts?

  • The baby could've dropped. Once they become every 5 or so minutes continuously then I'd say it really is labor.

  • Usually when it starts contractions get closer. If they are spreading apart it might not be the real thing

  • I felt the same way for 3 days and my water broke the 3rd night.... "fun" was the husband is what did it for me... I had my son at 37 weeks 2 days.
