  • BH can evolve into labor and yes, your cervix can change from any contraction.

  • Not sure exactly, but it is your body's way of preparing for the real thing.

  • Yes it can but not always. You can also dialate even if you don't have any contractions. I was in labor for 6 hours every 3 minutes and was about to go to the hospital when they completely stopped and I didn't give birth until a week later.
