  • The baby could have moved into an uncomfortable position, or it could be lots of gas. It sounded like a braxton hicks contraction until you said it's been that way for 2 hours...

  • Have you tried laying down? Your baby might be pressing outwards, or you could have some gas. If it does't go away after a few hours, you need to call your doctor.

  • I guess ur pregnant yes- u have minor contractions thro the whole preg. As long as their is no bloody discharge or heavy pain. The belly has to stretch- make room for baby. If it doesnt go away call the doctor and ask them for advice.

  • It sounds like gas. Try doing some bends to work the gas out. Lay back and put your hands over your head or stand with them over your head to expand your lungs and waist line. Try eating slower and sitting as straight as possible to avoid extra air intake. If it continues then lay down for awhile on your sides to try and release the gas and if it doesn't stop and is really painful or you notice bleeding call your doctor.

  • hey, try playing with baby. tap on your belly and act like you are tickling your baby. try to get him to move around so you can get some comfort. that sounds like it could be your problem. but you should still try to stay off your feet as much as possible. good luck
