Am I having contractions or still BH?

I am 35 weeks, dilated to a full 2 and my cervix are opening as of last Tuesday at my doc appt. My baby also dropped 3-4 days ago. I have been having what I think are true contractions, but not sure. I get this pain in my lower back and stronger feeling period cramps than what I was having, and my stomach gets hard as a rock all over. I got up to try to walk during one of them and that just made mee have to pee, and it hurt when I tried to pee.

Lay down in your bed and time the pains. If they are coming at regular intervals, then you could be having real contractions. If they are all over the place (ie one comes, then another 4 minutes, another 10 minutes, another 5 minutes ... etc) they are not true contractions.
