Two weeks to go and period cramps

I have two weeks to go and I’ve been having period like cramps for the past two weeks but only two to three times a day but for the last few days they have gotten more frequent and noticeable and almost every other hour I have them but they aren’t timetable they are just spontaneous.

They sometimes make me have to go poop (sorry) and stretch around my lower back and hips as well as lower tummy.

Someone told me they are just Braxton Hicks but they are so different from when when I got Braxton Hicks in the second trimester then they didn’t hurt at all and my belly tightened but now I don’t notice any tightening.

I have an app tomorrow and I’m going to ask then but what do you ladies think ?
