Braxton Hicks?

I am 23 weeks today. Since yesterday I have been experiencing this woerd kind of uterine contraction , I can feel it hardening from the outsid , it is not very painful , but uncomfortable. I am not able to describe it very well, it is somewhat a cramp like hardening /contraction lasting about 30-40 seconds. My called my hospital and spoke to the nurse. She wants me to monitor it for the next couple of hours, increase my fluid intake and then call her back again.

Is this common? Could this be a symptom of preterm labor?
