Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

It probably is. The difference between that and true labour is that real contractions start at the back, and come around your belly. BH start at the side and go to the middle. Also, real contrations hurt, BH contractions are just annoying. Hope that helps!
im 34 weeks and the same thing has been happening to kinda feel likes the baby balls himself up alll the way at the top of my belly and just stays there,and then after awhile it goes away.I asked my doctor and she told me not to really be concerned unless they start to come every few minutes at the same time intervals inbetween or if they start to become painful.
