Keep waiting for my first contraction or Braxton Hicks and yesterday about 4 am I was a waken by pain/discomfort at the bottom of my belly. When I tried o get up, it hurt more. After I managed to get up and use the restroom (1 and 2) the pain went away.... So was that a contraction or just how it's going to feel now when I have to go to the bathroom.

I think it was, my belly was really hard too. I hope it was, I'd love the baby o come on her on in a week (37 weeks). I told Dh that we'll have to do the deed starting next Sunday (doctor said not to due to bp) to hurry things along.

I've been getting what sounds similar to that for weeks now. My dr told me it was just my cervix ripening. Hooah. lol

It could have been just gas/needing to go #2, lol. I get that every now an then as well. I thought contractions were felt more towards the top of the uterus, as they are meant to push the baby downward? I don't know necessarily about that, but I have been getting some braxton hicks every now and again, and I can say that my whole uterus/belly area gets hard - like if it is hard and feels like your forehead then it's probably a contraction, if it's feeling like the tip of your nose then maybe not. That's what I've always heard anyway.

Good comparison!! It was as hard as my forehead! That is a great comparison bc sometimes it's hard like my forehead and other it's like my nose...Huuummm guess I've had Braxton hicks for a while now, they simply were not associated with pain.
