    Default Braxton hicks vs early labour

    I'm 25w+4d pregnant. I have been having what I think is Braxton hicks all day. Tonight the contractions are about 20 minutes apart. I have not had any blood or watery discharge. Some are really painful and others not so much. Also I have been experiencing pressure "down there" in between contractions. The contractions are mostly felt low in the front and in my back.

    In your experience, what were the main differences between Braxton hicks and early labour?

    Hi love heart
    For me the difference was that bh went away if I rested or took panadol. Whereas when I had my prem labour I had contractions close together (5 -10 mins apart) and back pain that wouldn't go away. If u are really worried ring the hospital middies and go in for some monitoring to be sure. Hope it's just Braxton hicks
