Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Do not ignore your symptoms. You might be feeling the soft vulval tissues, or prolapsed umbilical cord, cervical mucus, bag of water, etc. The exact cause can only be made out after thorough examination. Visit your gynecologist/midwife at the earliest for thorough evaluation. Further measures would be started to help you based on examination and investigation results. An urgent ultrasound scan might also be needed to look for fetal wellbeing.
Take care.
