Hi! I am 33 weeks and have been having painful contractions which I thought were just really bad braxton hicks. I went for my regular appt last night and told the dr and she checked me and said that my cervix is soft and that I am having real contractions not braxton hicks. I am not dilated though. Has this happened to anyone? I am so afraid I wont make it to full term. She suggested going out on maternity leave now instead of the 15th, I am trying to hold out till at least next week. This is my second baby and I never experienced anything like this before.
