braxton hicks?

i get them and they dont ease up at all they stay for like 30 minutes or more. so everyone told me to walk and it should calm them down. i walk and they do go away but the minute i sit down wham! they come back and they are 10 times worse then before! its been like this for almost a week now and i go to the doc tuesday for my weekly app.( i have 5 days left to my due date) but does anyone know why they get worse instead of better??

  • Your close to yur due date so the walking it off method may actually put you into labor. Just a warning. Thats what happened with my first pregnancy.
