Question contractions or what

Im at 34 weeks and for the past two days my stomach will get really tight all over and start hurting and i have to lean and back and take long slow breaths. Almost like i have to go to the bathroom but i cant. Ive also noticed that my pee has gotten a yellow color to it. Could i be having contractions or are they just the braxton hick contractions. this is my first pregnancy not really to sure what to look for. How can i tell if my cervix is dilated!!!

Re: contractions or what

They sound like BH contractions. Trust me, when it's the REAL thing, you'll know. It'll start out feeling like very bad period cramps. You feel a lot of pressure and pain in your lower back. This is will just continue to get worse and worse. With my first pregnancy, I didn't want to go to the hospital too early so I stayed at home as long as I could. By then time I decided that I had waited long enough, the contractions were so intense that I was crawling on the floor. I had had painful ones before, but NOTHING like the ones I had during the real thing. Hope that helps . . . . a little.
