Hi Ladies,

I'm 38 weeks today. On Friday night I had very painful cramping but was constant, not in waves and subsided to nothing after about 40 mins. Today I've had stinging across the centre of my belly, for hours now. It's not like period cramps, it's there all the time but bearable at the moment. I've not had any show or lost my plug yet, but I never thought Braxton hicks were painful.... I'm a FTM so all advice gratefully received!
