My first pregnancy, so I don't really know what contractions feel like, but I dread sneezing. I feel a quick pain that kind of shoots through my lower abdomen when I do. Maybe its the same thing; maybe its something completely different. Hopefully someone else can give you a better response.

I have a contraction when I sneeze and when I have an orgasm. I've done this from about 15 weeks with all three of my pregnancies, and I've never had a problem with preterm labor or anything like that.

You should be. Eventually having a contraction will make you have a contraction
. If they are infrequent you should be alright. The ones you are having now really don't feel much like what full labor contractions feel like. Towards the end with DD1 I was dialated to 3cm for 6 weeks and my BH were frequent but definitly different than once I was in labor.

Its fine
I have a contraction when I use my abdominal muscles (like when trying to recline back), pass gas, have to pee, have to have a BM, think about contracting, jump up and down (or run). You name it, I contract. I have an "irritable uterus" and did with my two previous pregnancies. Dd1 was born at 40wks and dd2 was induced at almost 39.
