In brief: Probably

Probably yes, but some women feel these tightenings while others do not.
If one does not feel them it is not abnormal.

In brief: Yes

The uterus is a muscle and like all muscles contracts periodically during the pregnancy.
Some people "feel" these contractions more than others.
