I am 36 weeks tomorow. With my first pregnancy I thought I was having braxton hicks because it didn't seem so bad, turned out to be the begining of a long labor. With my daughter I went to the hospital with contractions twice in two days before they admited me for delivery. Now I'm having strange cramps, like when a 'charlie horse' climbs up your calf then goes away. The baby moves around in between, so it can't be labor. (?) It seems to happen more when I'm moving about, walking & what-not. Could this be the infamous Braxton Hicks? What's the cause of Braxton hicks anyway?
