Are prodromal labor contractions the same as BH? The contractions I've been having on a consistent basis for the past almost two weeks seem different from regular BH. I'll be 36 weeks on Sunday.

These contractions sometimes come every 7-10 minutes for 2-3 hours and then go away. They feel like tightening or a wave of pressure that begins at my cervix and radiates to the top of my uterus. Identical to the contractions I had with DD2 in transition (wasn't in labor before that), just not as intense or close together.

I'm also feeling my pressure on my cervix. Maybe he's lower now.
