Are you dehydrated? Dehydration can make BH worse.

 Yes, the OB told me to try laying on my left side and drink lots of water it's due to being dehydrated, but if it keeps happening I would as your dr.

Yep--totally normal.  I found I got them really bad when I would go to the bathroom too...my tummy would get soo rock hard for the longest time.

That happens to me sometimes when I stand up. Not every time but occasionally.

with my last pregnancy, i had that every 5 mins for 3 weeks. some were harder than others in hurting...no progress at all, just let your dr know at your next apointment unless you get worse like labor
