  • My guess is maybe it was a braxton hicks contraction. Those are annoying and painful. You stomach will get so tight and hard it cuts off your lungs' ability to expand- which cause you to be short of breathe. I would describe a bh contraction as a heaviness in y stomach and chest.

    Does that sound like what you experienced?
