can contractions feel like bad stomach ache?

Basically yesterday I woke up fine, but then mid-morning started getting
mild stomach ache, which just felt like normal "something not quite right"
stomach ache. After about an hour I noticed it was coming in waves spaced
about 3 minutes with a definite peak. Took gaviscon (antiacid) but didn't
effect it. I had a couple of times of feeling really sick. Gradually I got
better, and managed to eat both lunch and dinner fine. In the afternoon I
had a bit of the runs so assumed it was the tummy bug going round.
However, this morning, from about the same time, I've now got the same
thing, only this time it's under the bump rather than on top, so I'm just
beginning to wonder if it's something more.Although the pain is now more
continuous than in waves.
Baby has been very active this morning so it may just be me feeling sore!

Debbie (who's beginning to wonder whether I should have thought about
packing a hospital bag before now...?)

Hm... Maybe. (trying to remember not all that long ago lol)
I was really sick the weekend (3 or so days before) DD2 was born. Had that
norovirus thing that went around. Very upset stomach. Maybe it might be
worth a call or a trip to your doc/midwife?
Pack your bags as soon as possible, just to be safe ;) I always forgot
about that, and then I remember with DD1, N was the one that grabbed me some
clothes after I had already gone to the hospital. He came to the hospital
with my "bag" and in that, he had put some really old "pregnancy"
grannie-panties in it, along with some pj type clothes that I normally used
for bumming around, cleaning house. The underwear was what really got to
me LOL
Good luck!

I had some cramps the other week that came over me in waves. I ended up
staying overnight in hospital as they thought it could be early labour
signs. Never did find out what it was and it passed after 24 hours.

I did find that I was constipated at the time and some fybrogel and fresh
orange helped solve the constipation and not had the pains since.

I'd say, grab a bag - quick, ring midwife and ask for advice, she'll
probably send you to hospital for a few tests but take a bag in case they
want to keep you in overnight to be on the safe side.

I'm feeling fine now. Minorly sick, but that's how I feel during pregnancy.
:-) If I get it again (same time?) tomorrow then I'll give my midwife a
call. It's mayday holiday here today, so I don't really want to call unless
I'm really thinking something is going on. Baby's moving fine.
I probably ought to get the hospital bag packed at some point. Most of the
stuff's up in the loft, and ought to be washed too.
You reminded me of my mum's reaction when me and my sister were bought to
see my brother just after he was born in hospital. Dad had managed to find
the bag of clothes to go out-all too small, crumpled up, and in a poor
state. I think it was the bag to be thrown rather than sally-annie even. Mum
said that she was so embarrassed!

Well, the first stages of labor for me were feeling like I'd had
salmonella poisoning (I'd had chicken for dinner). I expected it to be
more like the BH contractions, but this was like a horrible GI
illness. It wasn't til 5 hrs later or so when I noticed it was coming
in regular intervals that it might be labor.
