hey, im only 30weeks so im not feeling a lot of pressure like you but maybe your baby has engaged itself in your pelvis? Tightening could maybe be stronger braxton hicks... Im just guessing but i hope it helps
I'm 32 weeks and have been experiencing pain and pressure since 27 weeks, the baby is sitting forward and causing me a lot of grief - especially trying to balance and walk!. The braxton hicks are getting worse and i'm having to get bed rest some days. I don't think the size of the baby is the cause but i hope everything goes well for you.
I felt that way from 30 weeks with my first pregnancy. I was due to have a big baby, so I think that was alot of the reason. I used to walk to and from work (more like waddle) and it became very painful. I gave up work shortly after because I was on my feet all day (I worked in after school hours care) and some of the kids I looked after could become violent. Just think, it will all be over in four weeks, so just put your feet up and try and relax....
