I put a discussion up on here on thursday asking if anyone else had experienced severe stitches muscle ache below their ribs! Mine got worse and was doubled up, really felt like was going to split in half! Rang Addenbrookes and they told me to go in in case it was Braxton Hicks. Had all the checks and was fine (except for slight infection and low iron levels but nothing to worry about) told to rest and was wondering if all my exercise helped to bring it on. Am now resting, no gym, no nothing. Only thing is I would like to take an iron supplement (been taking Pregnacare) any suggestions? Do I have to go to doctors as midwife didn't think it was an issue.
ooh - Floradix is brilliant. You can get it in Sainsbury's about £7 a bottle. It's a liquid herbal iron and vitamin b suplement and really gentle on your stomach. i took it for slight anaemia while i was pregnant and iron levels were fine by blood test a week or 2 later and i felt sooooo much better
