They sound like Braxton hicks. To minimize them, make sure you stay hydrated and when you start getting a cramp or pain try switching positions, stand up, walk around, etc and this should help stop the pain.
I'm 34 weeks and I've been getting cramps and lots of pressure I'm guessing there just the Braxton hicks. They are kinda painful to. I never had them with my older 2 and I didn't dilate much, maybe this is a sign ill dilate farther.
I as well! The cramps are not that strong to me because they feel like period cramps but they go away after 30 seconds so they don't last for too long. I am also 33 weeks and these are just false labor pains so I'm good unless they become stronger then I would go to the hospital.
