Stitch like pain, 30+4

As the title, am in bed and can't get comfy
I have a stitch like pain in my right side above my hip. Very painful when I take a deep breath before yawning.

Is this anything to worry about or yet another of the joys of pregnancy?

Joys of pregnancy, unfortunately!!
Baby is just lying one one of your vitals in an awkward way...a wee foot/bum/arm pressing somewhere. Totally normal at this stage. Also, I always found lying on my right side made things drag in a more uncomfortable way than my left, I know it's not massively helpful in easing your discomfort but may alleviate some worry!

Google 'round ligament pain in pregnancy'. Will put your mind at rest.

31+1 here and have exactly the same. It sometimes swaps sides but have awful stitch pain. It's just everything stretching and bubs running out of room.

Thanks all, I had totally forgotten about ligament pain, I didn't really get it last time. I was on my right side too, cuddling ds to sleep so got stick there for a bit.
