36 weeks pregnant with constant hard stomach

If your belly is constantly hard you are just probably feeling your uterus. At 36 weeks the uterus is pretty large and firm. It is filled with fluid and a growing baby. Earlier in pregnancy your uterus was hidden by your other organs, muscles, fat and skin. By 36 weeks the uterus is large and is much more obvious with very little between the uterus and your skin. It is normal for your uterus to feel solid and firm.
