The tightening pains are most likely BH contractions which are practice contractions. The movements feeling painful is either because baby is running out of room (most likely) or your fluid could be low if it's really painful. Labor pains/contractions feel more like period cramps starting out and are timetable.

A little pain is okay, however if the contractions are regular and and get closer together/more intense after a hour or two, then you could be in labor. Has your doctor checked to see if you are dilated or effaced?



Btw your baby is due the same month and day my first was born (was also my due date) :)

he checked me thursday but when he checked me like water came out and he got worried and sent me to the hostipal and have them do a stress test and to see if the baby has fluid or not. But everything turn out fine but he never told me how much i was dilated but i think i might be around 2 or 3 because it felt like he went up pretty far. Thats neat lol i want my baby to be born this month. Theres to many birthdays around my due date and i want him to have his own.
