I have been contracting periodically for days, which I know is normal. I wouldnt call em braxton hicks cause they actually come with some pain, but they're not early labor either cause they are not regular enough. I just am wondering if anyone else had this for long periods of time before they were in "real" labor? and if so how long? I was induced my last pregnancy and am letting this one do what it wants basically so I am a little clueless. Im aware that ppl comtract for weeks, just seeing what happened with others. She'll come when she's ready!

My BH contractions always give me some pain. I've been getting them since 25 weeks. As long as they aren't super painful and consistent then you are fine

That sounds ab normal to me. Is it interfering with daily chores or anything?

I had braxton hicks for at least a month before I delivered. And the day that I went into labor my contractions were more mild than the braxton hicks. I was checked at my docs and was a fingertip dilated. When I got to the hospital I was almost four. I hope things go well for u.
