Did i just have a contraction?

Okay so, i was working on my third piece of toast. Then all of a sudden my belly started to feel like it was burning. It took my breathe away almost. I started to pant to get the pain to ease. It only lasted a few seconds. But it was sooo painful. I'm 39w 3d by the way.

  • Could have been! lol If you've been having Braxton Hicks contractions at all through out your last trimester, it could have been a really strong BH. If they continue to grow in intensity and frequency, it's likely you're starting your first stage of labor.

    Congratulations either way, because it won't be much longer now! Wishing you a peaceful labor and delivery.
