Past day or so I the top of my bump has become very tender to touch, feels bruised but there ate no bruise marks! Anyone else had this?

Almost have you had your bp etc checked lately because pain at the top of the bump can be a sign of pre eclampsia, x

Hi I'm 39+6 with DC3 and have had this with all 3. With me its strained ligaments so even a little walk leaves me feeling a bit battered and bruised.

had bp checked this morn n was fine,
Don't recollect it in previous pg's, just feels bruised n tender.
mw said it's not uncommon, I was thinking perhaps it might be bruising inside from baby's kicks! But writing it down sounds a really rubbish explanation! So I will just keep guessing!
Thanks for replies

yes i've had this off and on too.....put it down to stretching pains. I'm 33 weeks now but first noticed it a couple of weeks ago when my bump grew to reach just under my bra line.

ive had this a few weeks now as well. figued it was down to a touch of internal bruising(!) as well as stretching pains - ive nto even told my mid wife as i figured its just one of those things?!

It could be separated abdomen- where the muscles split doen the middle- this is how mine started felt like the skin was bruised, now its a constant burning pain bloody nightmare and ive another 4 wks to go, might be worth mentioning to midwife, they can check you for it but there's not not alot they can do for it really.
