Sometimes the tightening you feel is Braxton Hicks (practice contractions). These get stronger in the 3rd trimester (which you are now in). The baby is also getting bigger, so s/he may be pressing up against you, also giving you the feeling of pressure in your belly. BH should not be consistent or painful and usually only last from 30 sec to 2 min. If they become regular or very painful, call your doctor.

Braxton Hicks feel like a tightening in your lower stomach sometimes they can be a little painful, but more uncomfortable. You shouldn't be having several in a row though, it could be a sign you are actually having real contractions. Braxton Hicks will increase if you are very active, it could be your bodies way of sayng "slow down". Definately mention them to your Dr.

If you notice that you seem to be getting several in a row, take a rest and drink lots of water, they can be worse when you are dehydrated. If they continue you should call your doctor.
