Like the old saying goes, practice makes perfect! Your delivery is no different. Braxton Hicks contractions prepare your body for the real event. These contractions are defined as sporadic uterine contractions that can start as early as 6 weeks into your pregnancy (however you usually do not feel them that early on). As you progress further into your pregnancy you more than likely will experience Braxton Hicks contractions more often. Typically, it’s not until your last few weeks of pregnancy that they are more pronounced. These contractions are named after the English doctor John Braxton Hicks (1823-1897) who was the first to describe the contractions in medical literature.
It is important for moms to know the difference between true labor and Braxton Hicks contractions. With these contractions, the muscles of the uterus tighten for approximately 30 to 60 seconds and occasionally as long as 2 minutes.
It is strongly recommended that you contact your physician right away to properly diagnosis the cause of your contractions. The main difference between false labor and true labor is that with false labor the contractions are not as consistently longer, stronger, and closer together.
