Hello

Im 30 weeks and incredibly uncomfortable, when im sat at a desk and then get up I get a really strong pulling in my bump, and then most of the time i have this 'been punched in the stomach type winded' feeling. can anyone suggest anything? has anyone else had this?

Hi this sounds like me a week ago (now 32 weeks) - I had a few days of feeling really heavy and my tummy was painful - by evening I felt barely able to move. I think it may have been the baby turning head down for the first time. Or maybe going through a growth spurt? Sorry I can't be more helpful, but just wanted you to know you're not alone. The pulling sensation is something I've had all the way through. Hope you feel more comfortable soon. Tell your midwife if you're worried or movements change.

I am going through the same thing and am also 30 weeks pregnant. Also have a bruised sensation sometimes that I think is where the baby is pushing repeatedly against. Am also much more shattered than I was a week ago. So perhaps this stage is a time of increased growth & change for the baby?

Me four! I'm 31 weeks and I feel so uncomfortable all the time. According to my midwife the baby is having a growth spurt so it's just my body getting used to it. I do feel your pain and I hope that all of us are through this stage soon! <crosses fingers>

I have the same, the only way I can get comfortable is to lay across my sofa or in a warm bath. Or it feels like something is digging up into my chest, but laying down or a warm bath helps relax my muscles.

So glad it's not just me! I'm 31 weeks & despite feeling relatively energetic throughout my pregnancy, this last week I've been hit by exhaustion. Ive also had the same funny pulling sensation. Also the kicking has changed to more of a squirm - think baby is running out of space in there!?! And then there's my belly button which is on the verge of popping confused yeuch
