Hi, I'm 36 weeks pregnant and woke up this morning with a bruise like pain just to the left of my belly button. Its about 2 inches across and very tender. Do you think this is anything to be concerned about? I've also been getting lower back period type pains for a couple of days too.
I had something which sound sismilar it felt almost like a burn in a small area but the skin looked normal, MW said it was just the skin and tissues being stretched to the max, it went immeadiately once he was born. Th back pain could just be the pure wieight of your pregnancy now and that all the ligaments etc become looser during pregnancy so you can damage yourself very easily.HTH
Thank you both. Thats put my mind at rest. Didnt want to phone MW and look an idiot. My stomach muscles have totally seperated so that would make sense. Good excuse to make DH do the hoovering. Thanks again.
Wow, i had this too, had it on and off since had my son two and a half yrs ago, but (im 8 weeks pg nnow), had it REALLY bad in tesco a couple off weeks ago, couldnt talk or barely walk, dr said it was othing to worry about. Never heard of other people having it, so im not dying then, or going mad??
