If you had such strong braxton hicks contractions last night that you thought it was the real thing does that mean real labor is close?
No, braxton hicks just help your uterus prepare but it does not mean you are close to delivery trust me I have been there too sweetie.

Answer . I did not have any contractions and I was dialated to a 2. Braxton hicks do not normally make you dialate. Real contractions do make you dialatel
STRONG FAKE LABOR PAINS AND CRAMPS
My cervix is soft...when will labor start?
Yes; they are normal and most women experience them at some point but you should notify your doctor at your next appointment of your BH contractions.
you can have braxton hicks for a long time weeks or months there is no way to tell \n.
Probably not Braxton Hicks as they aren't regular they are random. If they become regular, more frequent or stronger ring your m/w or the labour ward as they are probably real… contractions.
My wife who has had them say no.
you feel them in your uterus
How can you tell the difference between braxton hicks contractions and real contractions?
Strengthens the uterus for the big day
4 or fewer per hour are acceptable. 5 or more call your doctor.
Braxton Hicks contractions can occur far before labor actually begins, though sometimes they might occur shortly before a woman goes into labor. The first "true" labor sensati…ons can be anything from crampiness to "full blown" contractions to losing one's mucous plug to having bloody show to experiencing loose stool or to feeling one's water break.
NO because braxton hicks is just a temporary contraction, not increasing in frequency and interval.
