Have you checked your oil level. It sounds like your pump is sucking air and the pressure is bottoming out. Yes in most cases replacing your trans fluid will cure the shudder

Check your oil it will surprise you how much you can burn through the valve seals without knowing it. If you have the right tools yes you could replace tyhem yourself but I would just drive it and check your oil more often
