  • Baby could be on a nerve or something

  • no that's not contractions, that's the baby pressing on your sciatic nerve.

  • No, not contractions, like another poster said, might be your sciatic nerve, talk to your doctor about it. And FYI, Braxton Hicks(practice contractions which you can start getting halfway through your pregancy) and contractions are a hardening of your stomach. The muscles "contract" and make your stomach hard. BH shouldn't be painful, just really really uncomfortable!
