  • Sounds like it may have been a contraction...if it continues just start timing them

  • It could be a small contraction no way to know until you start having them more frequently or your water breaks! Good Luck

  • Might have been a contraction, or just one of those crazy pregnancy pains. I wouldn't worry about it.

  • A contraction (or 10, or 20), doesn't necessarily mean labor. When they are close, longer, and intense you might want to start to time them.
    Even frequent ones might not mean it's time yet. Or water breaking, either. Really, it's more likely to be a combo of a few things that indicates it's "time."
