Your abdominal muscles might be staring to separate. Does it feel like your belly is splitting open, ripping and kind of a burning feeling? For me it started around 36 weeks and it kind of gets worse, sorry to say. I felt relief from a belly band type of thing that holds the belly muscles together, but it also wasn't very comfy to wear.
Ask you OB/midwife about it, doesn't sound like labor to me.
Good luck with your birth! It's such an exciting thing!!!
