for two pregnancies and carried both full term. I think it depends a lot on your cervix, if you don't have cervix problems it's probably nothing to worry about. So maybe at your next appt you could get a cervix check, or before then if you continue to have them. I think I just didn't know enough to worry about it. Definitely better to be on the safe side. For dd#2 I went in to be induced and the nurse said, oh you're having contractions, I was surprised because I thought they were just BH.
