24weeks and pressure

So every once in awhile atleast once a day i have lots of pressure in my lower stomach. Could it just be the baby moving or could it be something else? I should mention my stomach does get hard when i feel that pressure.

  • It sounds like Braxton Hicks contractions. Totally normal. As long as you aren't feeling sharp pains then I wouldn't worry too much about it.

  • I was having that problem too and I realized it was always after I ate a big meal. I am trying to have more regular smaller meals and it seems to be helping!
