Before I went to bed last night, I had this weird tightening in my upper uterine area....almost like what is left of my stomach and lungs was being crushed. Also...I was feeling a tiny bit crampy too. I remember having two more sensations like this while I was dreaming/sleeping.<br><br>
I had an internal exam on Wednesday, so I wonder if that had any effect. The baby's head is engaged. I am thinking that my body is just starting to prepare itself for labor, since I haven't felt these things regularly.<br><br>
Anyone else feeling a little off sometimes? I guess it is hard to tell since we are rounding the corner and there are all sorts of new experiences going on with our bodies.

Could it be braxton hicks contractions? It sounds similar to how mine feel...

Yeah, sometimes when I'm laying on my side and have a BH my heart starts feeling like it's pounding and I feel kinda short of breath- almost like I'm having a palpitation.<br>
Sounds like maybe that's what coulda happened... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">
