I should know better with number 4 but my MW has just started talking about tightenings.....

yes I consider them to be the same thing.

But tightenings could also be refering to what someone thinks is the start of labour.

could be either - I kept referring to BHs and midwife almost 'corrected' me each time, saying "tightenings" instead...
