Sorry if slightly TMI.
Just been to the loo and was pretty badly constipated. I tried not to strain and relax but was sat there a long time thinking it would make an appearance soon.
30 mins later I just had to get it out and really pushed and was successful but now I feel like I've torn a stomach muscle or something.
I'm sat still but it's hurting off and on, almost stitch like pain.
It's hurting down the centre of my tummy around my belly button too then down towards my lady garden.
It's like a ripping feeling and hurts when I press gently on there.
Very worried I've done some lasting damage or that I've hurt the baby or the placenta.
Feeling movement from the baby so I'm guessing its ok.
Just wondering if anyone knows what it's is or had any experience of this.

i have and no need to worry, sounds just like ligament stretching pain, can be really painful, like a sharp sore pain. if you are too worried just call your m/w smile
