I had no contractions with my first until the middle on the 2nd trimester until I had to pack some stuff. The contractions were VERY minor and stopped as soon as I sat down for 5 minutes. Didn't have them again to middle of the 3rd trimester and they came more and more frequently until I started real labor.
This time I started getting harder contractions, again that started while packing, and I stopped immdiately and they kept going for several hours before stopping. My son was 18lbs 3 oz at his 6 month appointment and is probably 19lbs now. I had contractions more frequently after all the bending and lifting of him. Should I be worried? I'm not used to the intensity of them this early. It's more like the BH I had mid-3rd trimester with my son. Kinda freaks me out. I can still function but it hurts and won't stop unless I stop, which I do.
I have contractions too. But they come out of nowhere, while I lay in bed or I'm sitting down at the office. My belly gets hard, as if I have a tennis ball inside. They are not painful, just uncomfortable. I sometimes get 2-3 a day and sometimes none. I try to relax and maybe go pee, because I read sometimes they happen if you have a full bladder.

I have been having a lot of BH contractions. I have more than 3-4 a day. I sometimes have that many in an hour. It doesn't seem to matter what am doing they happen often while I am laying down or just sitting still. They are not painful though. They do cause a slight shortness of breath. I plan to bring it up at my next appointment.
I think it is definitely something you should discuss with your OB because he/she might want to check and make sure that your contractions are harmless and not causing any dilation.
