Answer: Hello! It is absolutely normal to have it. It is part of pregnancy, this is due to the growing uterus.
Also, usually, pregnant women tend to experience symptoms of excessive hardness after the second trimester as it is then that the foetal skeleton develops and expands at the same time. The belly becomes hard after the bones in the baby's body starts to take shape.
