Contractions or?

Just wondering this sounds silly but my belly gets tight, and will relax, but I can't tell if its the baby moving up like close to my skin I guess or, if its contractions? What do you think? Oh btw I'm 36 weeks along.

  • Sounds like the beginning stages of labor to me. I didn't even know I was in labor my first time.

  • its not labor, its braxton hicks contractions. They can go on for months

  • i agree with jaydin, i think it's braxton hicks, which some people start getting months before birth, so you could still have several weeks left, which is good since you're just 36 weeks
