Sorry I can't speak from my own experience... I haven't walked past 29 weeks yet, since that's when my water broke last time. So I wasn't even feeling B-H yet (you probably feel them earlier in subsequent pregnancies).

Hang in there mama!
Be careful about drinking too much water. I've just heard recently that too much water can upset your electrolyte balance and set off ctx. If you do drink a ton of water and you are still have ctx try adding some gatorade or something similar.
I do find they are worse when I am dehydrated, or that a lot of times they are a sign that I need to pee (which is also more often than not these days!).
I keep telling myself that it just means I'm gonna have a *very* well-conditioned uterus for labor, but I have called the midwife on occasion, just to see if it's something more ...
Hugs to you, hang in there!
Similar issues now, except that I can lie down and rest now that I am only responsible for a 3 year old.
My belly support bra really helped with the rock hard uterus when walking contractions, tho. (And with my back pain). I think I forgot to wear it for the first part of cleaning yesterday or something...
