35 weeks, what is happening?! 😭

I am 35 weeks today with my first!

Today while walking, I felt like an electrical kind of pressure in my crotch. It lasted about 30 seconds.

The last few days I have been having inconsistent, dull cramps on my lower left side. Today, they started to get a little stronger, and we’re all across my lower stomach, similar to period cramps. While cramping, my stomach kept getting really hard on one side, almost like baby was curled up into a ball and trying to push his way out.

Is this Braxton Hicks and lightening crotch? I called my dr and she said keep an eye on it and if it gets unbearable to go into L&D. I haven’t made any attempt to time anything at this point. Do I need to be timing?
