Braxton hicks

I'm really thinking these Braxton hicks are hurting. Like really. I'm trying to clean up and chase these girls and the dog around the house while my husband is passed out in the recliner! :/ can I ever take a nap? No. Lol, but I keep having to sit down each time one comes on. They arent strong like real ones but they hurt!!

If I walk for a while, I get painful braxton Hicks. They can range from not painful at all, to feeling like a real contraction.

jump into a hot bath/shower for abit and see if that settles them, if not then they maybe real contractions, sometimes in the latter stages of pregnancy b/h can get quite painful and can be confused with early contractions, but if your having to stop what your doing and concentrate on them, then they maybe the real deal....
