    My belly has gotten so hard that it feels it could almost pop!

    I have that tonight n it is so uncomfortable. I also have bad pains like period pains that go right through to my bum!

    Do you get this when baby is engaged? Im wondering wether he may have started moving down already? Anyone else's belly actually so hard and stretched!? Xx

    Mine gets like this sometimes, I think baby gets into some crazy butt poking out position or something! It's weird. And a bit tender!

    Yeh I can usually feel him but I cant feel him anywhere cause my entire belly is so stuck out! Like a football that can not be squeezed at all! Lol. Way uncomfy! Xx

    Ahh see mine happens a few times a day and lasts about 10 mins at a time! To me it just feels like baby is arching her back and she's about to explode out of me hehe!! Xx

    Haha me too! I'm sure all is fine its probably just the position he is lying! Mention it to midwife when you next see her. Eee the things we go through to bring life into the world ha! Xx

    My belly is constantly rock hard. It's like a big lump of concrete stuck to my front lol. It feels all bruised inside at the top above my belly button and when I mentioned it at antenatal on Friday the doctor said it's probably all the pressure because my bump is so tight and hard :-( It's really uncomfortable so know how you feel Kelly xx

    My tummy is getting more stretched and harder. But if it's hardening and then softening and hardening again it sounds like Braxton hicks
