What do you call a singular braxton hick?

At 36 weeks pregnant I am having strong and frequent braxton hicks that sometimes stop me in my tracks. I'll have to say "hang on, wait, I'm having a braxton hick". Sometimes I just say "I'm having a hick". 😂

My husband laughs and says theres no singular word for them. Do you just say you're having a contraction?

Ha ha! I love this question. I think stick with "I'm having a hick".

I'm going to adopt that phrase (I'm only 17 weeks so got a while to go yet).
