  • Cramping after a lot of physical activity at any stage during pregnancy is pretty typical. Doesn't sound like braxton hicks, braxton hicks are just irregular contractions so if you are having a solid pain then it's probably just from the walking. It's normal, nothing to be concerned with. If the pain gets really bad or your start bleeding then of course you'd want to get it checked out but I was very active during my pregnancy and I know every time I was active I'd have lighting cramping afterward.
