im 28 weeks and 3 days, and i have been having a bunch of Bh's im just wondering when is it something to telll your doctor about? im easily getting about five or six an hour and thats with me relaxing, they arent painful just make me feel like im going to start my period. so i guess a little uncomfortable. and this has been going on since about yesterday.

I think the rule is 6 or more a hour
I would call your ob and see what they want you to do

I am in preterm labor. I am 30 weeks and it started at 25 weeks. time them first to see how far apart and if they are consistant. also they say to go for a walk, if they stop they are BH. if it doesn't change you should call your OB. BH shouldn't be painful at all. just tightening. the cramping can be from your uterus stretching.but your body starts BH to get uterus ready for true contractions. Its always better to be safe then sorry so you might just want to all to be sure
