Stomach tightening during pregnancy







A viewer asked:

“I’m 34 weeks pregnant and sleeping on my sides causes tightness in my abdomen. Any tips?”

We advised:

The expert advice here is to use a pillow or a cushion underneath your bump and a second one between your knees. This helps raise your abdomen and also support your back and hips.

The tightening in your abdomen could be due to Braxton Hicks contractions (when the womb contracts and relaxes). Now these are completely normal, and many women experience them during the second and third trimester.

But if the tightenings continue and you’re less than 37 weeks, it’s always best to contact your midwife or your maternity unit for advice just to be on the safe side.
