When I slightly press on the side's of my belly it hurts. Anyone know what could be causing this??

Yes it's normal. It's just your skin, muscles and ligaments stretching. Unless you are in unbearable pain, it is normal.

Your baby is probably just dropping or turning into position. As the babys doing that to get ready for birth, its pushing your organs around which can cause pain.
