    Default 15 week with hard spot on my belly?

    Morning all,

    This morning I woke up to my belly feeling rock hard on the lower left side. As soon as I touched it, it softened so I couldn't feel how big it was, but I'm guessing maybe as big as my palm. This has happened a few more times through the morning, and it always softens as soon as I touch it. It's not painful, I can just feel how hard it is.

    Anyone else had this, and is it something to be concerned about?

    It could be Braxton hicks contractions, I don't think it's baby stretching at this point, but early for that.

    I'd be leaning towards focal BH. Had similar with my first pregnancy and just thought it was bub. Until it happened all over.... Had them from 16 weeks through to birth.

    wow I thought it'd be too early for BH yet! Haven't had it at all since I got out of bed.

    Never to early for BH ;-) I started at 9 weeks and up until 40+5 gestation when after all those months of BH (which became my nightmare) I finally had the real thing and had no idea, it was just luck I had an ob appointment and he checked my cervix which was 6 cm so I waddled across the road to the hospital haha

    It's your uterus hun! And it's only gonna get bigger

    I'm 13 weeks now and I can feel it just above my pelvic bone, especially when I wake in the morning with a full bladder, and also after orgasm, etc, it's definately more noticable.

    I love feeling it!!!! Such a neat feeling, and it gets SO hard too, like braxton hicks.

    Yes bh, I'm 13 weeks and getting them. Took me a while to figure out why one side of my belly kept going hard.
