Are these contractions? Im 29weeks

For the past 4hours my stomach has been tightening up and i get alot of pressure under my ribs. The baby will quit moving when i tighten up then when my stomach relaxes the baby goes crazy. And they make me sick. Is this something to worry about?

  • definitely sounds like something you need to call your doctor about now! TIme them, see if they are consistent. either way, they sound like contractions and you need to get checked out

  • I agree could be braxton hicks but it is definately worth putting a call to your doctor and getting checked out. This happened to me around 30 weeks onward but they didnt get painful.

    Hope everything is alright
