Q:

I am 26 weeks pregnant. My tummy gets tight at night time due to which i am unable to sleep. How can i cope up with this?



If your pregnant belly feels tight and heavy, it's usually because your uterus is expanding to accommodate your growing baby. As your uterus grows, it eventually pushes up against your abdominal wall, giving your belly that tight-as-a-drum look and feel. As your pregnancy progresses, it may be a sign of a possible miscarriage in the early weeks, premature labor if you aren't due yet, or impending labor. It can also be normal contractions that don't progress to labor.

In most cases, a tight stomach is caused by physical factors, such as digestive issues or hormonal changes. The feeling can also be caused by chronic stress. Stress reduction techniques, such as mindfulness, may be helpful in such cases I hope this helps
