  • Only if you're far enough along.

    Have you tested? Nothing anyone tells you here will tell you the straight scoop for YOU. You need to test.

  • Your tummy feeling hard is very normal. As you progress in your pregnancy, the muscles will contract getting your body ready to deliver, the muscles contracting makes your tummy hard the correct term for the tummy getting hard from the contractions is called Braxton Hicks. Google it and learn more about it. So it will ease your mind. rest assured all is well Hon.

  • I'm not sure how far along you are; but I have to add a reality issue not mentioned...If you are several months along where you have felt movements you need to lay on your left side after a drink of OJ or a snack, and there should be moves w/in 10-15m up to 1hour later, if not, please call your Doc/nurse as there could be a problem. I've been there, learned this too late. This is not to worry you just that it is also a symptom of a problem..baby in distress.
