Hmmm well they were averaging 4 mins apart (between 6-10 but mainly 4 mins) but they stopped... this happened to my aunt, she was having them all day 10 mins apart then they stopped for an hr then they started up fast and furious and she had her daughter 5 hrs later! lol
ETA: georgia, I read this which made me think it was real ~ Location of pain: In true labor, contractions generally begin at the top of the uterus and radiate over the entire uterus and through the lower back into the pelvic region. The discomfort associated with Braxton Hicks contractions can be felt anywhere in the body, most commonly in the lower abdomen, the lower back, or the groin. True labor is felt all over the uterus and surrounding area, beginning in the back or top of the uterus; Braxton Hicks should only be felt in the frontal part of the uterus. Sharp pains or pains that occur at distinct intervals should be regarded with extreme caution.
