Do you count contractions where you know you are contracting because you feel with your hands or see that your belly is tightening, but don't feel it or not?

My midwife was feeling the baby today. I had a contraction so she had to wait until it was over to try again. I didn't think about it at the time, but I can feel with my hands that my belly is tightening up. Or sometimes I can see that my belly is tightening up (just had a different look and then I feel my belly and its hard as a rock). My body just doesn't seem to feel it if that makes sense.

Should I be counting these? I didn't feel anything in my belly with #1, so this is all new to me!

Also, I was at work yesterday and I leaned over to reach something funny. Baby did NOT like it and let me know. Now, I have a very, very sore spot on my side from where I felt her kick me. Is there anything to do to relieve that sorness/pain? As if once wasn't bad (ya know think I'd learn my lesson the first time right?) I leaned funny again and she repeated. So needless to say I'm very, very sore!

I have a constant bruise where she kicks upper left side daily, ouch!
I also have the bh that I can't feel till I touch. I don't count them. Now I just started having bh that feel like labor that HURT, but only a few a day. I'm only going to count those. With my 2nd I went in to l&d and was in labor and didn't feel it. But it was very beginning stage of labor. I think once it's time to go in, usually, pain will be felt. You will have to concentrate and breathe through.
