37 +2 weeks full term

I'm 37 weeks + 2 and my lower stomach hurts it keeps getting tight and then it'll let loose then get tight again. My mom say it might be contractions but I don't think so. I do have a timer for contractions I'll use it and see. I'm going walking once it cool down outside.

    That sounds like contractions to me. They may just be Braxton Hicks or practice contractions. Try timing them for awhile, make sure you are drinking plenty of water and get some rest. If the contractions are 5 minutes apart lasting for 1 minute and have been regular for at least an hour consider heading to the hospital to get checked out. Good luck and stay calm!

      Could be contractions, could be Braxton Hicks - warm up contractions. If they go away after your walk, then they are probably BH. If they get stronger, then they could be the real deal.
