I am 34 weeks pregnant and I have been having belly tightening off and on all day non stop . This is my first baby and I am unsure if this is just BH or normal!.. My belly gets so tight that I can see the outline of her body well and it hurts sometimes of cramping badly, I dont however have any pain in my vag area just my back and belly.. Please any advise will help I worry to much.

That sounds like labor!! your baby could be coming home early! I would call the doctor and ask them what you should do!

It's the beginning of labor. I had it on and off for 2 weeks before my labor started. For 3 days before I went into actual labor I had them regularly all day non-stop. It never really hurt though. Once it started hurting and tightening at the same time I knew I was in labor. Since you are only 34 weeks and they are hurting I would call the doctor.

Even if I do change the position from standing to sitting or sitting to standing it don't go away they stay for a little while.

Just go to L&D if you're that worried about it. A professional can check you out and put your worries and concerns at ease, at the least.
