trilobite - October 20

For the last week my abdomen became tight and heavy. is there any concern? I am thinking the my tummy is growing suddenly and trying to stretch, but since I have become so unconfortable I worry if it could be a bad sign. Thanks for any input.

you know, I have noticed that my stomach feels uncomfortable too. Like it is heavy and it has started to itch. I think you are ok cuz if you are not then there has to be something wrong with me too. haha

In my expirience when my belly becomes tight I am usually having a braxton hicks moment... these are 'practice contractions' basically it's our bodies preparing for the birthing process in a few months. I began to have them at about 23 weeks or so. If they become consistent u should tell your doctor about them. I was told to monitor them and if i have 4 or more in an hour to go to the hospital. Try keeping yourself hydrated at all times. From what the nurses have told me dehydration can cause contractions.

I get that too im almost 25wks, i think you are right though its probably just the baby starting to put on more weight, but it is uncomfortable its especially when I sit/lie down and try and move or stand up, its like Im an old woman and I feel like Im starting to waddle a bit - goodness knows what It'll be like at 35 weeks or so!

Don't worry Gemini_Girl its probabbly false labour/braxton hicks its normall as you go further with pregnancy last night they woke up and after that I felt my baby dropped down a bit.
