Yes, I've had the same thing for the past few weeks now. Some days I'll only have a few sets of contractions, but other days (like today) it seems like my belly is rock-hard all day long. I never had BH contractions with my last pregnancy, so I'm not used to this at all -- it's tiring!!
I wish that it definitely meant that labor was close, but as I said it's been a few weeks now and so far, no baby! I do hope that they're at least helping to dilate my cervix a little more. I've found that drinking a couple of glasses on water and lying on my side can help them lessen in intensity if they're really wiping me out.
