is this from constipation, or baby or??

Last night I put my hand on my belly, closer to my pelvic bone, and felt that it was harder there. I thought maybe it was gas, but it's still there. I'm *thinking it's from consitpation?? I've barely gone this week. :/ Anyone else experience that? I was wondering if maybe it was the baby, or my uterus but I'm 13 weeks, and I haven't felt what I believe to be the baby yet.
If I take fiber, but don't drink enough water, would it make it worse? I'm REALLY bad about drinking water, though I'm trying to drink more. I'm going to my ob Tuesday, so I'll ask her what she thinks then as well.

  • really?! That's insane!! I really thought it was just because I haven't been going to the bathroom. I'm still not sure. I'll definately ask my ob. That's really pretty exciting if it is! ;) Thanks.
