I know its different for everyone but there is still that general idea, this is not my first baby but I had a silent labor with my son then a c section. So I have no clue, I'm having a c section in a month but I just feel extremly weird right now. The past hour or so I have had cramps, which is normal but they are so crampy my back hurts. I feel kind of light headed and just weird, idk how to explain it.

Ill call my doc if I feel bad enough but I don't like calling unless I need to since I'm an hour away cause if it was fake itd be a true waste

Help

Oh I forgot, my braxton Hicks are getting very very harsh, I feel them in my cervix even. Is that normal?

could be labor!  i know when i was going to be induced with my daughter i thought those same pains were just braxton hicks but they hooked me up the monitor and i was already contracting

That sounds like my labor. I just felt weird with what felt like period cramps  that progressed throughout the day. Then I started getting back pain as well so I figured I'd go in just to be on the safe side...my son was born 6 hours later. I'd at least call your OB to see what he thinks. Good luck!
