Labor signs?

Ok, so I'm 33 weeks and 3 days pregnant today. I have been having braxton hicks contractions constantly off and on since about 10pm last night. So almost 24 hours now. They come about every 5 to 10 minutes and last about a minute long. This morning I had back cramping as well as contractions. I don't want to go to the hospital yet because I plan on laboring at home as long as possible and don't want any drugs period. I want a natural birth. I sometimes get pressure during my contractions and was thinking maybe my baby was heading into position. Also, during some of the more intense contractions I feel out of breath and dizzy....I couldn't fall asleep untill about 2am last night because my stomach was becoming sore from the constant tightening. There is no pain during these contractions though which is why I believe they are just braxton hicks. Could this be labor?

I understand wanting to laboring at home for as long as possible but your baby would 7 weeks premature and the hospital will try to stop labor. You should go get checked,

if they are like every 5-10 min I would also get checked out since your kinda still in early weeks before labor.

True, thanks mommas. If they keep up than I'll go to the hospital.

I agree, it's too early for baby to come yet. Go in to make sure, you might just be dehydrated which can cause all sorts of weird things. If you are in labor they will stop it and give you instructions. :) GL
