so,ever since yesterday i havent been able to lay down on my left side anymore..
i posted the question about if it could be contractions but then it all just ended up being false contractions. But what im trying to say is that when ever i lay on my left side my whole stomach on my left side starts cramping really bad and below my stomach around the whole area,it almost brings me to tears with all the pain and it makes it really hard for me to move my bottom half of my body,i take forever almost an hour to try and go on my back then right side..last night i only slept on my back and right side,when i woke up my left side was hurting like muscle aches,like when you sleep on one side to much you have to turn to the other side,well i wanted to see if i would have those contraction feelings still if i layed on my left again,and when i tried it all happend again,but before it was to painful i tried (continues)

I had the same thing and could not lie on my left side. It has to do with the positioning of the baby inside of you and the strain it is putting on the surrounding muscles. You're probably having muscle spasms. If your stomach is getting hard, those are also probably Braxton Hicks contractions. The closer you get to delivery, the stronger and weirder your BH contractions may feel. BH contractions can go away if you switch from one side to another or get up and walk around for a minute. I would just keep off of your left side and put a warm compress on it when it starts to act up. Good luck!
