How long until they should get stronger and closer?

I have had some bad runs with braxton hicks wondering if i was the real thing but i have had 3 20 min apart that made me have to stop and breathe and say "ow,ow,ow,ow,ow" until it stopped. When should they get closer???

And if i had like 40 min without one and then went back to 20 min apart would that be braxton hicks?

  • My BH did that to me for the last 4 weeks of my pregnancy! I was finally induced. They would get at least 5 minutes apart... but I never actually started labor on my own. Everyone is different. Good Luck!
