    Default Tightenings - Is this just streching?

    Throughout the day (mostly in the last afternoon early evening) I've been getting these 'tightening' feelings. It almost feel like braxton hicks, but I know it's WAY too early for that. Is it just streching I'm feeling?



    I'm not too worried but I would just like to know.

    this is my second bub - and with my first, i didn't feel them this early from memory, but i certainly feel them now. Particularly in the late afternoon - last night it was pulling, tugging etc.

    cheers
