Are they happening at regular intervals? Like could you time them or are the just sporadic? I've been having those since about 22 weeks (33 now) and they are just Braxton hicks

Definitely Braxton Hicks. Drink plenty of water.

It's called Braxton Hicks contractions. They are normal and are not part of labor.
