Q:

hi all...m 37week pregnant.. n i sometime feel pressure in my abdomen...just for a second...plz tell me what could be the reason?



Adiba Ali

it could be braxton hicks contractions. totally normal to feel this way. nothing to worry about. tummy will tighten for a few minutes and then ease

Sonali Shivlani

What you are experiencing is Braxton-Hicks contractions. These are uterine exercises which increase in number closer to due date especially in the last couple of weeks. They are very normal if being felt frequently at this stage of pregnancy.
