Constant tightening/braxton hicks

Second baby, don't remember getting quite this many braxton hicks with first. With my first I had them from 16 weeks and frequently, but this baby they've stared much later on (26 weeks) and today at 31 weeks they are every 15 minutes. They don't hurt, but my stomach goes solid and square. It feels uncomfortable though. Does this mean I could go into labour earlier?

The advice I've read is you shouldn't have more than. Four in an hour and they shouldn't cause any pain. Wouldn't do any harm to get checked over just encase as the are every 15 mins. I'm 32 weeks and get them in the evening but not as regularly as you.
