Quoting leighleigh111:" Only thing weird is that they go one to say: Uterine contractions—an often painless tightening or hardening ... [snip!] ... consider the baby full-term even if it comes in that time frame. (They don't know how fast the baby is going to grow inside) "
The funny thing about that is that I get painful BH, usually every ten minutes apart for a few hours, and when I called L&D the first time it happened, they basically told me not to worry about it... said to take some Tylenol, drink some water, lay down, and see how I felt in an hour because regular, painful BH that come ten minutes apart for a few hours are apparently no biggie.
