Is this what a braxton hicks contraction feels like?

So this whole time I thought it was just the baby moving, and maybe it is. But my stomach definitely tightens up and I'll have like a big lump in my stomach, like some part of her body sticking out. It's as if she's totally thrashing around. It's not actually like painful really but definitely uncomfortable. Now it's been happening for like 10 minutes straight. And I'll get kinda like a shooting pain in my vagina or even what feels like it could possibly be my booty lol. I'm due tomorrow by the way.

  • it can sometimes do that at first but I looked at your profile you were 50% effaced so I bet you are a lot more  ow and you could have a fast labor hun I did before

  • Call your doc/ob. Getting checked sounds like a decent idea at this point in time. If you choose to wait it out, and you start feeling like you have to poop, go to the hospital immediately!

  • I'm feeling the exact same thing right now that you described and I'm 30 weeks. My doctor told me that it is braxton hicks.
    But if you do happen to be having your baby tonight, congrats and good luck!=]
