Funny feeling in uterus

I'm 23 weeks pregnant. I have had this funny feeling in my uterus all day. I wouldn't really say it's contractions and I can't feel any tightening externally with my hand but then it kinda feels light a very very light tightening and then after a bit relaxing but it's almost like the baby streatching and holding it and then relaxing. But it keeps happening (since this morning). There is a little pressure in the pelvis too but again, like the baby is streatching with his foot down there. It's so mild it's hard to say it's even happening. Nothing else going on, no spotting or anything. I have had an upset stomach but that's normal for me when pregnant. I remember something like this happening with my daughter and it turned out to be nothing. Should I just continue to wait and see? I don't have a car at the moment to go anywhere, my husband has gone to a movie and is an hour away.

Sounds like braxton hicks or baby stretching. I wouldn't worry, but if you are worried maybe you could contact your provider?

Sounds like BH to me, too. Pretty sure it's normal to start having BH around 20 wks.

I had them from around 20 weeks with my first, from 16 weeks with my second, and noticeably from about 18 weeks with my third, although I had a couple as early as 12 weeks with #3.

Sounds like BH to me too. Could also be the baby rolling over, around that time I started to feel the baby rolling around. Just make sure you are drinking enough water, sometimes I get BH when I have not had enough water.

Re: Funny feeling in uterus

I waited it out. I figured if I could barely tell if they were happening then they couldn't really be doing much. they seemed to fizzle out after I ate.
