Hi i am 35+3 weeks and i went swimming today because apparently it helps baby move down and get in correct birth position. The problem is i felt so good in the water because it was weightless that i did 30 lengths until i realised i should stop. After getting out my tummy has not stopped feeling tight and baby hasnt stopped kicking and im getting like a pulsing feeling(not hiccups) is this a sign that ive overdone it?

I get exactly the same after swimming. I think it is braxton hicks bought on by exertion. put your feet up and rest for the rest of the night.

braxton hicks, drink tonnes of water and rest up for the evening smile
