Painful Cramping and Inconsistentcies :(

I am 37 weeks going to be 38 weeks on friday. I been having sharp cramps and pains in my lower abdomen. This has been going on for about 5 or 6 days now. The past 2 days different things have come along with it though. My somach tightened up everywhere with the pains 3 times within a 30 minute period but that was it. Just usual pains after that. The pains start when i stand up and dont stop when i walk around. They only stop when i sit down and even then they come and go. I have read alot of things about this all similar but none the same and lots of different answers. Anyone have anything to say about my pains in particular? Thanks

First time mom, no clue what to expect

More than likely your having bh contractions. And you should keep timing them. When i was that far along my tummy was tightening up except i didnt have pain just the tightening then one day i had that feeling all day and went into labor that nite because i decided to time them if i wouldve never timed them i wouldve been delivering my baby in a bathtub. I was 38 weeks and 6 days.

First off, are you drinking plenty of water?? Dehydration can cause contractions. Secondly, if you are getting these pains, but they stop when you switch positions, most likely they are braxton hicks. When is your next appointment at your doctor or midwifes?? If the pain becomes regular and you can time it out, then call them.
