Is it normal when your losing traction to feel as if your hitting bumps.

(2010 Volkswagen Jetta)
in Alpharetta, GA on January 10, 2014
Somtimes when I drive rough the traction light will come on and it feels as though I'm hitting bumps. I think it may Be my tires spinning underneath while the traction control tries to manage it. But I'm not sure. An example would be I'm coming out of a stoplight throw it in seconded gear and give it some gas around 4,000 rpms the traction control light will come on and I can feel my wheels spin (feels bumpy) just wondering if this is normal.
