is it your baby pushing it’s bum/head/back out into you? My little guy does this atleast once a day, and it’s definately uncomfortable. It’s like he plants his feet and pushes his bum out as hard as he can. And then keeps it there. My stomach actaully goes lopsided when he does this.

I also have days (usually about once a week) where my stomach just feels extra bloated all over. It’s uncomfrtable, and I don’t get any reliefe no matter if I stand/sit/ay down. it usually lasts about 12 hours, and I assume it’s just uterus growing/baby growth spurt.

I’m nearly 30 weeks, and for the past 5-6 weeks, I’ve had days where my belly feels VERY tight and has lots of stretching pain/tightness – I always assume they are “growth spurt days” haha. One time it was SOO bad after I ate dinner that I felt like I could barely stand to walk because it felt like my stomach would just rip open. But yeah I do notice it is worse if I eat salty things that day, probably because the bloating causes even more stretch. The position can definitely make your belly feel weird too!

I have it too and my midwives say it is BH. For some people BH are longer in duration. I take CalMagCitrate (Calcium Magnesium Citrate) and it helps. (a scoop of it disolved in a large glass of cold water)

I had something similar a few weeks ago.  At night my stomach would get tight and last that way all night and would feel normal the next morning.  They had no definete answer for me either.  Said it could be because I’m doing more at home than at work (I have an office job) and said to take it easy with my feet up and drink more water.  It has stopped since I went in to have them check, I guess it lasted a week or 2.  Hopefully it won’t last too long for you!
