Is it normal to have braxton hicks contractions all day?
I am just about 38 weeks along with my second baby, and I have been having what feel like braxton hicks contractions all day for the past two days. The longest they've been apart is like 5 minutes or so. I definitely have had more than 6 in one hour, but my doctor has also had to stop my labor twice. Once at 34 weeks and once at 35.5 weeks. These contractions are not painful at all, just very uncomfortable so I don't think it's the real thing, but I'm not sure. I don't want to go to the hospital again just to have them give me another dose of terbutaline to stop the contractions. What should I do? How do I tell if it's the real thing or not?
