hi all i have a very tight lower abdominal sometimes it gets like rock it get;s so hard, i had an ultrasound baby is doing fine,they told me that my stomach get's tight and tense if i am under stress or walk to much..... has eneybody had that.... and what to do.. iam 21 weeks pregnant
Sounds like Braxton Hicks possibly, I mean they always made my tummy rock hard - from very early in the pregnancy. It is probably nature preparing your uterus for when you actually go into labour. Some women notice them earlier on than others do, but they do happen to everyone at some point.
Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree today.
Your uterus is constantly contracting, but has only recently gotten large enough to push up against your abdominal wall, where there are nerve endings. That's why you're just now feeling this "rock hard" sensation. It's just BH contractions. Don't fret about them.
I have been feeling the exact same thing when I walk fast or for too long. It only lasts for 10-15 secs and stops if I stop walking that fast. When I was pregnant with DD I had the same thing happen from about 17 weeks all the way to the end...
im 11 weeks and i have been feeling this for about a week now.. mine have goten to the point thaqt if i stand up to fast it is really bad and if i tried to yell (i have a new puppy so i yell for her alot playing in the yard and stuff) it is so tight and hurts. i was wondering to myself if it was bh but i didntknow if you got them this early. so your saying that could be it?
i get that. my stomach gets hard and if i stand up straight it feels like something is trying to pull me back over. i just assumed it was BH and havent thought anything of it. ive been having them since the beginning of my 2nd trimester and im now 31 wks so i guess its all normal
