Hi, seeing as I am on my second baby I should know but I don't remember having these last time.

For some time, although now I get them most of the day on and off I get a feeling of intense pressure at the front of my bump, around my tummy button. I put it down to the baby pushing against me but not sure now as it happens a lot, even now as I am typing. Can't say if my bump is tight to the touch as it feels that way all the time now (34 weeks on friday). They can get painful but most of the time they release the pressure just as things get really uncomfortable. They also sometimes seem to spread down the front of the bump.

Are these Braxon Hicks, or the baby pushing?
