I was just talking to a friend about this the other day. I'm 29 weeks, and my belly just started feeling hard, like, last week. I'd just call the doc and ask. It really doesn't seem to be something to worry about. Especially since people gain weight so differently, and some of us are "squishier" than others.
When it doubt, talk to the doctor. If (s)he hasn't mentioned it, it's either not too serious or been overlooked. Bring it up so you can stop stressing over it, and if there's something that needs fixed you can start doing something about it.
No need to worry, you're belly might not ever get super hard. Every woman's body is different, and depending on lots of things like your pelvis angle, width of hips, etc... you may have more internal room so the baby doesn't start running out of room and your belly feeling 'hard' until well into the pregnancy. :) Congrats on the pregnancy!
