27 weeks pregnant and getting lots of tightening feeling across bump.

Just after some reassurance really. For the last few days I've been feeling tight across my bump in the evenings and finding it quite uncomfortable. Last night was worse and hurt my lower back too. When I woke this morning I felt fine, but now I feel dreadful. Hard, tight bump and keep feeling hot and fuzzy.

Is it just a growth spurt? Should I just try and rest? Do I need to see someone?

I already have a three year old DD but seem to have forgotten if this is normal or if I need to phone someone (these things always happen at the weekend don't they!)

TIA

Also have quite bad heartburn! Oh the joys!

Braxton hicks?

Sounds like BH which can seem worse after a busy day especially with round ligament aches too ... If at all worried give midwife a call ... but I do know from experience that it's more intense in subsequent pregnancies as most things are smile

I'm 28 weeks today, and i've been having similar the last few days, if that helps - often quite intensely!

Thank you for the replies. I was feeling better this morning so glad that it was no longer constant! Getting it now after sorting out the old Sunday lunch!

Just another one of the joys of pregnancy I'd forgotten about grin.

I've been getting tons of BH since I was about 16 weeks, and now I'm 25. They have become more intense, so I sometimes have to breathe through them, but midwives aren't bothered, only if I start to get pains or they become regular. I tend to get them when I get into bed at the end of the day, and occasionally when I'm driving.
