they've no connection to how early/late you will go. i had them every 5 minutes for a couple of hours at 35 weeks, led to nothing!! they can happen any time in 3rd trimester.

Hi Wouldn't worry - I had them very regularly from 23 weeks with DD and she arrived on her due date so didn't result in me going early. Just try and relax when they happen or change position - I used to find sitting a certain way for ages would start them off.
