Hi I'm a week ahead and having almost identical symptoms, because I've had next to no other symptoms apart from the bump during my pregnancy I was a bit worried, was at my MW appt yesterday and she confirmed BH, she said the whole bump can go hard or just the top or bottom, really reassured me! Hope this helps !

I'm 33 weeks pregnant and so far have had a basically symptomless pregnancy - no heartburn, no morning sickness, no sore boobs etc etc.

I think I might have started having some BH in the last week or so, but I'm not sure. My whole bump does NOT go hard, but I do feel like the top of it - near my ribs - is tensing up. It feels like a similar sensation to a cramp in my leg but not really painful, just that the muscles are tensed up a bit.

Does this sound like BH or should I be worried about something else? Baby kicking as usual - he / she has started kicking me in the same area / the ribs a lot but this is different...
