Getting the stitch??

Hi everyone

I was in bed last night having a laugh with my DP (as you do ]wink]) when i suddenly got a stitch like pain. Didn't think anything of it really until this morning when i got off the train and on my walk to the office, the pain came back.

It feels like a "stitch" type pain. Is this what it is or is it something more sinister? I'm thinking perhaps it's the muscles stretching or summat to make room for baby?

Any info appreciated.

Yeah i spose it's kind of like that, but more like the stitch pain you get after you've been running around for ages (not that that's possible right now!!). It wasn't in my groin either, but down the outside and to one side of my bump.

It's probably stretching pains.

slow down

i always found i got that when walking too quickly (late for work again!!) it would literally take my breath away and i would have to stop

I only remebered after reading this post that I had the same hing when pregnant with DD.

Hope that helps.

I've been getting this since about 25 weeks (I'm 32+3 now) always on the right hand side of my bump. It usually happens when I'm walking but has happened a few times when I'm sitting down!? I looked it up and apparently its normal - does hurt sometimes though... HTH

saralou - if i slowed down any more when walking i would be static!! I'm 22+6.

Micegg & PLP - Yes, it helps to know that others have had it too. Makes me think that it is kinda normal. Oh and PLP - mine's on the right hand side too and it also first happened when i was laying on my back!
