Braxton Hicks, would you share your experiences ?

I have been having a lot of BH contractions, tightening of the uterus. Not painful, over very quickly, makes me feel like I have to pee. But, about 7 today I have noticed, not regular at all, random.

I am not overly worried, have been drinking extra water (not enough yesterday I am sure) and JUST saw the Dr. yesterday, who did not do a pelvic but did not think anything was wrong, though I did not mention this as it just really came to my attention today. (Actually, she thinks the baby is big!) So, this is not a panic, just a inquiry/survey.

SO, if you don't mind sharing, what are your experiences with Braxton Hicks? When should I be worried? Web sites say one thing, personal experience is quite another!

Thanks Ladies!
