I'm 35+3 I'm pretty sure  it's only been BH but not sure if it could be real contractions or not. My stomach  tightens and it's kinda painful  up high. It doesn't  last long but over the last few days I ha e been having  more and more of these along with lots of pressure  down low. I go to the doctor  on Tuesday  for my 36 week  check up.. as long as they are close together  do you think it's safe to wait for  my appointment? ?

Yea it's safe to wait.  For me BH contractions were never painful, just uncomfortable due to the tightening.  Labor contractions for me felt like preriod cramps in it lower abdominal region not up top.  They start off light and they will hurt but not as bad, the pain from labor builds up at a regular interval over the course of hours and get closer together and last longer.  To the point where u cannot do anything except endure the pain.  Ull know the difference, once u experience real contractions.  They won't go away no matter what ur doing.  Just get stronger and stronger...goodluck!!

Ok thank you.  It's been  16 years  since my last birth lol I was pretty  sure it was just BH but wanted to  check with others. They have for sure been very random and nothing  close at all. I only have 26 as before  I get induced.
