My belly is getting really tight all over with a lot of pressure. Sometimes at the same time as the tightening, I feel like I have to take deep breaths to get enough air, like I have a rock on my chest or something.

I'm assuming these are BH contractions?

Are they timbale? Do they get better with movement or worse? Typically BH are not painful, do not intensify or come at regular intervals and they won't increase with walking.

Maybe it is really early labor for you!

I've had a lot of tightening all day, but I didn't think much of it. They don't hurt- just pressure and hard to breath only sometimes. I'm just laying in bed now. The last two were about 15 minutes apart but I wouldn't say they are intensifying.

Sounds just like my BH - like someone's squeezing the air out of me!

I agree. In addition the doc said it is the baby giving a really good kick sometimes when I get it in the chest.

I had that same feeling randomly when I was in L&D the other day and they were picked up at contractions but when I was checked they had not caused any change. So they could be either.
