    Hi guys,

    All day my bump has felt tight and heavy, as if baby is lying sideways round me (not that I could tell if it was, it just feels like that!).

    Did any of you have similar feelings? Is it normal? :think:

    Thanks in advance xxx

    I get a tight bump some days too, try not to worry :)

    It normally happens when baby gets into an awkward position, it can be really uncomfortable too

    Yeh i know how you feel! sometimes a light prod or laying a certain way can convince baby to move round so it's more comfy for you.

    But i'm sure it's totally normal! :)

    Hi! In the second trimester the tightness can also be Braxton Hicks. Actually, that can happen from the very beginning, but is more noticeable in second and third trimesters. There is a lot about it online.

    Baby Collier likes to lean agianst my tummy it feels as if he may explode out like the Alien. :lol:
    I had a tight bump this morning and yesterdays well at least once a day now.
    So its pretty normal
    Yes it can be uncomfortable and once in a while a bit painful. But i know baby is ok growning and active as he plays mummy up. and gives me belly ache :roll: :D
