Ouch..Am I having Braxton Hicks?


39+1 and I’m having sharp pains plus tightening in my low abdomen. Lasts about 30 seconds and comes about every 15-20 minutes. I’ve been having this for the past couple of hours and it’s making it hard to sleep... I know most women say Braxton Hicks isn’t painful but is that what this is?? No wrap around cramps to my back.
