I'm 32 weeks and been feeling tightness in my belly also. I spoke to my ob about it recently and was told it's Braxton hicks contractions. It's just preparing u for the real thing. They don't last too long and come and go at random times. For some women they can cause a little pain for others it can be painless. Hope this helps and congrats your almost gonna meet your beautiful baby

Braxton hicks.
Do braxton hicks do anything to your cervix ?

Not really.
