Well, BH contractions are real, they just don't cause your cervix to dilate or efface because they are basically weak and unorganized. I had very frequent and strong BH contractions beginning at about 20 weeks. I would keep a running list of them every day, and whenever they started getting regular or too close together, I called my midwife and they had me come in to get checked. But I'm talking like every 5 minutes for several hours. If you are having them inconsistently they are really not a cause for concern.
