I get that frequently. It almost feels like they're going to shoot out through the skin. It usually happens on a full bladder, for me.

3 nites ago I felt a pressure on my left side and something (I'm assuming baby) slowly turning.. My lower abdomen got really really tight. No pain though. Then I felt this immense urge to urinate which I'm guessing little man sat right on my bladder. After a couple of minutes and an empty bladder everything relaxed. (20w6d)
At this stage they are pretty active and getting comfy is their favorite sport, that's probably what u felt also. :)

Gonzo posted something similar just yesterday. A few of us are having the "hard, tight, ball" baby belly issue. Very uncomfortable!

Mine gets so bad I have to get on my hands and knees and wiggle hoping the baby will reposition himself.

Yes, I get that. I will either rub the spot or push baby until it moves.

Yep... It's 'worse' when you're further along.

 Yes!  This happened to me yesterday and I was SO uncomfortable for an hour or so and then it just went away.  So strange...all i can think of was that (tmi) i was super gassy yesterday and I hadn't done a good job of staying hydrated.
