Weird cramp/grasp

Ok don't really know how to explain, but I have been getting a tight grasp sensation between my belly button down to my panty line, feels like someone is grabbing a fist full and just squeezing it then it releases... Only in this area. Not side to side nor front to back... Any ideas what this can be???

  • well actually when you get big sometimes the muscles can seperate. this is actually common and harmless. if you wear a bellyband it should give your mucles extra support and make the pains stop or atleast ease up.

  • could be braxton hicks. It feels like a tightening of the stomach area- lasts briefly and then releases. It can happen a few times in a row. If this is it- its pretty common and happens throughout pregnancy (moreso after 20 weeks)
