What does it mean if you have bad pains in your lower stomach back vaginal area and lower right side but your doctor said you are not dilated?

this could be a cause of braxton hick, these are practise contraction which occur within the pregnancy without dilation, they are said not to hurt but during my pregnancy i had them from 16th-30th weeks and they were often sore, i went into labour at 31weeks gestation and gave birth at 33weeks after 13days of labour.
