these braxton hicks are uncomfy! does anyone else get them if they have to pee really bad, or after they pee?

When I was that far along I only got them while I was laying down and I had a lot of pressure and my lower belly would be tight. Now I'm 35 weeks and they are so much more uncomfortable. Sometimes I can hardly walk because of all the pressure and I've actually peed myself once. Not in public thank goodness. They become more frequent when you get further along so be prepared lol. Its a lot worse with a big belly and baby gains most all its weight in the last couple of months so you grow a lot. My braxton hicks feel like they are on the top of my belly and it feels like my baby girl balls up real tight and won't move but its just a BH. So so uncomfortable. Its hard to breathe or move and of course you will feel the need to go to the bathroom but don't want to move.

Yea it just recently started getting painful. My grandma came up to help me because my husband works full time all day everyday and he doesn't want me alone if I do go into labor because he works an hour from home. She has me walking everyday and its so funny because this is our first so any pain is a new pain. We were walking around Walmart yesterday and it felt like someone stabbed me in my uterus real quick (complete exaggeration but the only thing I could compare the pain to lol but it did hurt) and then it would stop as quickly as it started so I hunched over in reaction to the pain and said that's a new one...my grandma about died laughing at me. Doc said it was normal because uterus is preparing and so are my tummy muscles. Its quite and adventure. I have a doc appointment at 9:50am and I'm wide awake with horrible heartburn at 3:06am plus some excitement. I always get excited before an appointment lol. O and heartburn gets a billion times worse further along at least for me it did.

I have it all and I suffer. Definitely asking my doc for that prescription she offered if nothing else helped. It wakes me up every night and won't go away :(
