  • tight at the top, is probably just baby floating up. If it's tight all over, it's most likely a Braxton hicks contraction.

  • I had the same problem. Its common early on as your stomach is still stretching and growing. It will get less smushy as time goes on. I would not panic but maybe the next time you go to the Dr's mention it. It doesn't hurt to mention it.
    It also could just be where the baby is laying and you can't 100% feel that its the baby yet.

    Good Luck

  • it's probably just the position your baby is laying in. don't worry about it! :)
