36 weeks and stomach feels like it's burning and tearing.

From the center of my abdomen to under my right breast. It was coming in waves last night and actually kept me awake, now it's pretty much constant. It's worse when baby is directly underneath. I've been having waves of sickness too. Im having another big baby - like my others.

I've just phonesd triad at the midwife station and was told to get an appointment with my GP (grin hmm) as it didn't seem a pregnancy issue. hmm

Any ideas? I'm too old for this shit (37) this baby has broke me

I thought upper right hand abdominal pain was a symptom of preeclampsia? Do you have any other symptoms? Does it feel like it's from skin stretching or is it a deeper pain?
Sounds miserable 😞 Could you go to the antenatal day unit?

I'm 38 and 38 weeks with a big baby - I don't have this. Sore skin but not pain like you describe. I honestly think you should insist on being checked at the hospital, it sounds worrying.

Can you call your midwife as well? Mine is usually more sympathetic than the hospital. I'm also 37 and am 35 weeks pregnant. I have been getting pains on my right side, but I think it's just where baby is beating the chap out of me from the inside. Good luck and I hope you get some help/relief.

Maybe google gallstones and see if it matches your symptoms (usually pain under ribs on righthand side). Is it worse after eating or eating particular things? Gallstones can develop in pregnancy due to hormonal changes.

Hope you find out what is causing the pain.

Hi all, it's a burning stretching pain not an internal stabbing pain - almost on the top layer of skin not deep inside.

When baby moves under that point it's awful, at first I though it was just were her feet were but it's constant now.

Will google gallstones and pre eclampsia. Local mid wife is about tomoro and I'm at the consultant on Thursday so can chat to them about it too.

Thank you flowers
