I was recently involved in a car accident as a passenger and was held overnight for monitoring because I was having contractions. I was released but put on bedrest because they slowed to what they called a "normal" rate. I noticed throughout my time on bedrest that I continued to have both braxton hicks and contractions, but they never came closer than 30 minutes apart. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone have any suggestions on how to tell the difference between braxton hicks and true contractions?
