Could be the FAKE ones.. Braxton Hicks... cause the REAL ones you'd know!! they would not only make u stop what your doin and get your attention... they'd have u holdin  the wall..  or your tummy

I had the same feeling call your closest labor and delievery and they will probably tell you to take two tylenol and lay down for a hour and if they get about 3-5min apart come in... That's what they told me at 33wks and after waiting I still had to go in and get labor stopped twice that day... Good luck I hope your little one waits til its time

I've been doing that since about 32 weeks..  Sounds like bh to me.  I'm still waiting to see what the REAL ones feel like. The BH themselves can get really annoying, so I'm betting not fun. :)

When i was in labour with my son (my first child), I honestly didn't know it. The contractions felt like butterfly kisses across my stomach. The only thing about them was that they came every couple of minutes regularly. It was my more experienced friend that pointed out that I might be in labour.

Having my son was a breeze. No pain, nothing.

My second child was an emergency caesarian, so i can't give you much advice from that haha!

Best of luck!
