  • If you are prego I think you tummy should be hard! How far along are you? Don't freak when the baby starts rolling because that is weird!

  • yes, it is completely normal for your belly to feel "hard" while being pregnant. Also Braxton Hicks can start as early as 15 weeks sometimes ;) As long as it's not in a pattern(like getting hard then soft) more then 5 times an hour your in the clear. Plus babies butt may be sticking out and when they are in different positions like that the belly will feel harder in some places but not in others. Plus you have twins in there girly your gonna feel stuffed pretty early!
