Having tightenings in my stomach on a daily basis

Hi Alex
I am currently 20wks pregnant with my 4th child, and have started having tightenings in my stomach on a daily basis, which feel like braxton hicks. can you please let me know if this is normal and why is this happening.
Thanks Bev

Answer: Hi Bev, Yes you probably are having Braxton Hicks. This is great and to be expected, you may be more aware of these after having a few children. Best wishes, Alex
