Stomach Tightening?


I'm 22 weeks tomorrow, what does it mean when your stomach hardens and tightens? mainly happens at night. It's not painful, just wondering what it is?
Never had it with my 3 previous pregnancies x

Sounds like braxton hicks to me. I think I have started to get a few of those myself, was lying on the lounge and this wave of feeling came over my lower abdomen, was weird - got it a few times.

I agree with the other girls, definitely sounds like Braxton Hicks.

I got it last night... BH at 20 weeks?

I thought it was cause I needed to have a bowel movement and I was full of gas to the point of feeling like I was going to be sick.

Will definitely ask family doctor on 12th of January though.

Yes Braxton-Hicks AKA your uterus warming up for the big event! Mine was tightening up pretty hard over the weekend.

I was just about to post this! For some reason, it only does it after the baby dance for me. I feel nothing, just my stomach feels like a rock in one place. Is it BH?
