What is the difference between prodromal labor and near-constant Braxton-Hicks contractions?? I'm having BHs almost constantly anymore, and they make it hard to carry on whatever I'm doing at the time - if I'm sitting I can't move/change positions, if I'm standing I dang sure can't sit/bend over. If I'm walking I have to stop until it passes. It's been pretty much all day every day for the last month, they definitely grab my attention, but I haven't timed them or fretted about them or really given them any thought at all, just because I have it in my head that my body doesn't do natural labor (only went into labor on my own once in my past 4 pregnancies). Haven't even bothered to check my own cervix, although I know how. I just can't get my head in a place where it's like I'm even capable of labor.
