braxton hicks?

I'm a little confused on if what I'm feeling is my baby stretching or if I'm having braxton hicks. My entire stomach gets hard but I feel the baby moving at the same time. It feels like she is going to rip my stomach open but I don't know if it's because my uterus is contracting and squeezing her or if she's stretching and that is why it gets hard? If anyone understands what I'm saying.
Sound like braxton hicks or an uncomfortable baby who is doing a good job on making mommy uncomfortable too?
