What did braxton hicks feel like for you? Also does having braxton hicks mean I'm close to labor?

I had braxton hicks starting at 20 weeks if not sooner it did not mean labor was coming for me at all

It just feels like a tightening of the belly. And no, it doesn't mean labor is near. I started noticing them at about 7 weeks with this pregnancy.
