How many BH are too many?

So last week while I was on vacation, I started to notice myself having kind of a ton of Braxton Hicks contractions--sometimes several in an hour. (I was sick and coughing a lot and probably dehydrated, so that might be part of it).
Today I decided to use www.contractionmaster.com to time them to see exactly how often they were happening. Between 2:00 and 3:30 I had 11 contractions, ranged from 5-10 mins apart, lasting from 30 secs to a min and a half.
I'm certain this isn't real labor because they are very minor--not painful, just tightening--sometimes it is even hard to tell when they start and stop--and they aren't increasing in duration or intensity, but it still seems like kind of a lot of contractions for only being 33 weeks pregnant!
Has anyone else experienced anything like this?
