I am 27 weeks and havent had braxton hicks BUT I have had the crampy period pain and back pain and stabby vagina pain (we call it Vagina Lightening in our DIG ) Someone told me it is probably the baby engaging and is actually a good sign that things are progressing how they are supposed to. I also dont recall having either with my first pregnancy but it was a while ago. I will say though that my cramps and back pain lasted for 2 days but seems to have passed now.
If you are concerned call your OB or midwife and ask

Ooh I remember this from my first pregnancy...I used to call it 'The Sting'.
Ouch! But totally normal.

yep, it's normal. I hadn't had it with the first two pregnancies and with this one had it constantly.. lol. it's hideously painful. i was told it's the baby's head touching the nerves of the cervix.
but yes, definately normal. i don't miss having a stabby vag. just try to walk slowly.. i found it helped sometimes.
