I had Braxton Hicks contractions from week 31 of pregnancy and did not really know what was happening until I had them at work and was rushed to hospital because I thought I was in labor, only to find it is false labor pains too. It felt as if it was the real thing. And I'm having them every day, I'm now 34 weeks.
