Mine start when labor starts. I don't get false labor. With my 2nd they started anywhere from 5-20 minutes apart and within 4-5 hours they were  at 5-7 minutes apart. Then another 6 hours later they were 4-5 minutes apart and then they jumped to 2 minutes apart right at the end. That lasted for maybe an hourbefore I had my daughter.

4 days before I went into labor. I had experienced BH contractions after sex and whatnot, but these were different. My entire stomach tightened up and I would look at it like...WTH?? Happened on and off sporatically, nothing I even bothered timing. The day I actually went into labor my contractions actually started the night before after my husband and I had sex, they kept waking me but I didn't realize what was going on. They gradually got closer together and more intense, until I couldn't function at work anymore and headed to the hospital.

I never really had contractions. My water broke right when I laid down to sleep and I went straight to the hospital. I got the epidural before I was really feeling any contractions and I didn't feel anything for the rest of the labor. My water  broke 11 days before my due date, it was my first baby.
