Hardness can mean the baby's head is right under their hand and their stomach feels hard there. It can also refer to Braxton-Hicks contractions that feel like a tightening, then relaxing. they usually start around 30 weeks though that varies a lot between women. That is your body gearing up for labor, though they are usually painless.
