This is my second pregnancy and completely different than the first. I am 37 1/2 weeks pregnant and I just started having Braxton Hicks contractions every 15 minutes. They come when I am sitting, standing or sleeping and nothing seems to help them go away. They probably last about 20-40 seconds. So, my question woud be is this considered pre-labor? I haven't lost my plug completely that I know of. With my first child I lost my plug at 37 weeks and the next day my water broke. I never had contractions until after my water broke and then it was a couple of hours after that they started happening. My feet,hands, nose and lips are super swollen these days and I feel really uncomfortable.
