when i was pregnant the same thing happened to me. My stomach would tighten and it would be very uncomfortable my doctor told me that was normal and everything was fine.. Soon after that i started having the Braxton Hicks contractions so that might be apart of it. But i wouldnt worry i am sure everything is fine

hi i am 36 weeks and am in exactly the same boat as you its been happening for months now it happens when i am doing to much so you should just start to relax now it happened with my first pregnancy aswell mine stays hard for long periods of time doc said thats ok.
your breathing should get easier aswell when the baby engages which should be soon then the bad bit about that is you have to do pee pee all the time as the head will be on your bladder i got up 6 times last night rather annoying good luck.

It was my experience that your stomach should not remain tight for a long period of time.  A BH contraction is just that, a contraction.  They don't last more than a minute or so.  

If you have a continuously tight stomach then I definitely think you're 1) Doing too much, and 2) Not getting enough water.

Definitely mention this to your doctor, take it easy, and drink lots of water.  Hope this helps, good luck!!
