Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
With the progression of gestational age, some amount of tightness of the abdomen can be seen as Braxton Hicks contractions occur.
These are infrequent, irregular, painless contractions, which will subside soon without need of treatment.
Taking adequate water and fluids, avoiding retention of urine, rhythmic breathing, changing position, lying preferably in left lateral position etc can decrease tightness and mild pain.
If tightness and pain persist even after these measures, better to consult your doctor and get evaluated to rule out the possibility of premature uterine contractions.
