I am currently 28 weeks and today have felt very tight all over my tummy, not like BH but just like my skin being stretched, also baby not been as active although still lots of movement, just wondering if anyone else has felt like this???

I remember that feeling. It felt like the baby grew first and ran out of room (might explain the movement decrease), then my skin would expand the next day to accommodate him.

thanks smile that was what i thought about the slight decrease in movement that baby having growth spurt. Its a funny old thing pregnancy , no wonder why people get stretch marks i thought it was a slow progressive proccess!!
