    I have just noticed over the last few days a hardness just above my pubic bone - I am HUGE but its not hard yet either and I have two in there!!!!!

    My B bump has turned into a D though yay so looking preggers rather than 'who ate all the pies' or in my case 'caramel chunky kit kats'

    hehehehe

    My bump has gone hard over the last couple of weeks. Makes me feel better that its not all wobbly and making me look fat :) I used to have a little 'under boob fat' and now I just have one big belly so looks nicer :happydance:

    Maybe it refers to the uterus coming up...? I wouldn't say mine is "hard", but it feels "firmer" where the uterus is (and as your pregnancy progresses the uterus moves up past your belly button and eventually meets up with your rib cage...).

    That would be my theory.

    I'm 22 weeks and its a solid bump when I'm stand up but also 'who ate all the pies' when I sit down. I've still got an odd B shape going on due to spare tire above my waist.

    I noticed my bump feeling more solid around 15 to 16 weeks but its only become notciable through clothes in the last 2 weeks really.

    Think it depends on your figure and way your baby is lying.
    If baby hasnt got all its back to your belly, more than likely you belly will be softer.
    I didnt find my bump was hard most days till into 30wks

    I'm so glad this thread was stated because i was going to post one this morning.

    I've got up this morning and my tummy just above my pubic bone is rock hard to the touch i can also feel it when i bend over. I have not really got much of a bump at the moment....so was quite shocked to feel it so hard over night!!! :D

    it's mad i remember when i had that hard lump there too - i 'think' it's your uterus and you will notice it moving higher and higher as the weeks pass! mad isn't it xxxxx

    ive noticed my tummy getting firmer recently.
    i can feel my uterus below my belly button now, my B bump is starting to turn into more of a D shape
    so no longer feel fat :) more pregnant.
