    Default Is it Braxton Hicks?

    This is my first pregnancy and now, at 36 weeks, could do with a little advice, please. I have had mild stomach pains all day but I also have degenerating fibroids, which I take panadeine forte for. It's hard for me to tell if the pain is fibroid pain or something else, although all day I have been walking slowly and gingerly as sudden movement hurts.
    About two hours ago I had some intense cramping across the top of my stomach, then down my sides. It was agony walking around the room (I was on verge of tears) or trying to sit down and I felt really hot. I upped my painkillers and the pain is more manageable, as long as I stay in one position and baby doesn't kick.
    So, does it sound like Braxton Hicks to you guys? Thanks

    If the cramping is irregular in its timing so coming at varying times (i.e 3 minutes then 5 minutes then 10 minutes etc.) and lasting for varying times too
