sore bump

Perhaps that's it, I did wonder what they'd feel like. So far I'm not a fan! Think today has been one of those days where pretty much all of my body has ached at some point. I hate not knowing what's normal and what's not!

It will probably be the start of BH's

I am 27 weeks and just starting to get the hard and tight tummy spasms.
Basically my bump goes rock hard and feels like a rugby ball. I have to focus on making it relax by breathing through it.

Btw -for me, this was nothing like the actual contractions when they started with Ds1 - which were much lower down and felt like bad period pains

Well it seems to have been there for most of the day, eased off a bit now thankfully and my bump was quite hard and tight throughout the day. Is this braxton hicks as I feel so dumb I don't know what they are meant to feel like?!

Mine goes like this with the braxton hicks. Is it going really tight? Either that or it could be where your abdominal muscles are stretched so tight? Does it come and go or is it a constant pain?

Definitely get it checked out tomorrow smile

This may be a daft question but I'm new to this.. I'm 33 weeks and my bump is sore all across the top. Most of my kicks are top left and I feel bruised around there normally but today I'm sore all across the top. I may just be going a little stir crazy from the tiredness! I have my fortnightly check up tomorrow and will ask then but wanted to check with you good people to see if it's a common complaint!
