The first six months of your pregnancy is over.

Hard bellies

Your uterus regularly contracts during your pregnancy. From the fourth to fifth month, these exercise contractions increase. This is very normal: your uterine muscles also have to train for the big work later on. Your belly then feels like a hard ball. A 'hard belly' can occur if you suddenly get up, bend or tilt, but also if you have been busy. Also a full bladder or an orgasm can stimulate the uterus enough to contract. Sometimes a 'hard belly' can be a bit painful, but usually you notice very little of it.


If a yellowish liquid (colostrum) is released from your nipples, it is important to keep them clean. It is best to wash them a few times a day (without soap) and carefully pat dry them.
