How far along are you?  I never got BH contractions until 37 weeks, so by then, I was told to come in only if the contractions were 5 minutes apart for an hour and painful enough I couldn’t talk through them.

If they are real BH ctx, they should stop if you drink a big glass of water and go lie down in a dark room on your left side.  Real contractions do not stop.

BH contractions are toning your uterus and shouldn’t be changing your cervix, so there shouldn’t be a concern with them. 

If they subside in a bath, you’re fine.  🙂

You could always call you doctor and just check in; I think it’s always better to give them a call right away than wait it out.

I thought they had stopped.   Have you put your feet up and taken a rest?    If you’re worried, then you can call, especially if you have a history of PTL at 24 weeks.

Please call your doctor just to check!!!

 

My SIL had to be stopped from early labor several times, and they were worried at more than 6-7 per hour (granted, this was with twins around 24-33 weeks).
