My tummy goes really hard and tight (like it would if the baby were to push out against it) and it is so painful- it literally feels as though my skin is tearing!
I dont know what to make of it. It's not like a contracting sensation and can last any where from 15 minutes to an hour straight! I seem to get it maybe once or twice a day, some times more.
Initially I just assumed it was the baby moving, but it doesnt seem to be that at all.
And as for Braxton Hicks- well they're not supposed to be painful are they?? (Plus, dont they only occur in your lower tummy??)
Has any one else experienced anything similar?
I'd love to hear your thoughts on what it might be???
