Braxton hicks?


I think I just had my first case of Braxton hicks it was like sudden extreme pain and tightening of my belly for like 10-20 seconds then just gone it woke me up from sleeping does that sound like it to y'all? I'm going to mention it to my Dr today as I already have an appointment just curious if y'all think that's what it was. Update: the doctor said it was definitely Braxton hicks, and that Braxton hicks can be extremely painful especially for those of a small stature. Thank you all for sharing your comments/experiences!
