  • Not sure, but I think I was having them yesterday after carrying a crock pot full of chili (it was pretty heavy)....lasted for several hours and finally went away.... I am 26 weeks along.

  • yes. very normal.

    they will become more frequent as you get further along. if they get painful though, that's not normal. mine were never painful. my tummy just got really tight all throughout, like he was "pushing" really hard against me, or trying to "stand up" inside my bellie, lol.
