I'm having some contractions?

I know they are different for everyone.. but right now my back will start to hurt and get achy, then this little wave will roll over my stomach all the way up to my chest. i notice that when that happens my breathing gets a little short. my whole stomach gets hard and it last for about 45-60 seconds. and feel kind of pinchy and like cramps. are those contrations?

  • EDIT:
    im 38 weeks 2 days with baby number 2. they were getting more painful but still pretty irregular i guess. it was late when they started waking me up. i was pretty groggy so i didnt time them. so far they have gone away. but who knows lol
