  • By tightening up do you mean your abdomen? If so that could be contractions.

    It's not very common to have so many that you can actually feel at this point but it does happen. If it becomes regular you SHOULD call.

  • You should call. Us preggers feel dumb when we have a symptom we are not sure about because we're scared they will say is husband makes me call or calls for me..remember is not just our health but the baby's too. Even if it's won't have to wonder. Make sure you tell them exactly how you feel.

  • I've asked my dr plenty of "stupid" questions and she always tells me there are no stupid questions. Its better to be safe than sorry. Plus a symptom that is nothing in my body could be something with your body. The safest thing is to just ask. GL
