For me, my stomach gets really hard. If I'm lying down I can actually see my stomach move forward. It's the weirdest thing. This is my 3rd pregnancy and I had never had them b/4. I told my doctor about it, I thought it was my super spunky daughter going wild!! I felt really dumb when she told me I was having a contraction. They can be a little painful, but not the way you describe. You should probably call your doctor and see what they say. Good luck.

Hey chris, i went to the dr today describing the same sensation almost (I also feel it in my inner thighs). He said that it is due to the fact that your bady can't keep up with all of the changes due to being pregnant. That area is under greater stress with weight gain, moving baby, extra blood and fluids ect. (I was insulted by the weight gain comment (I'm down 21 lbs from pre-preggo weight!)) But the pregnancy is still taking a toll on that area. I would make sure to mention it to your dr just to be on the safe side, especially if you are having a tightening in your uterus and any blood or fluids. good luck!!!!
