Achy Bump

Hi All

I am 26 weeks 5 days and my bump is quite achy on and off. Am I right to think this is just stretching etc? I am very petite, although my bump is HUGE now! Its worse when I am full after eating or if I have been sitting forward etc. Is there anything I can do to help this? I can still feel baby moving around fine etc.

It's pretty common. It could also be Braxton Hicks contractions.

Am with you in soreness! Yes, unfortunately, it's pretty normal. Sigh.

Sounds normal but only thing I would say is if it is always top of bump under ribs it might be a UTI, I had a kidney infection at 25 weeks and that's what it felt like.

i have a really achy bump and am only 16weeks.
it is my third tho so prob not as fit as i was or muscles as taught.
really horrid if i walk around the shops or ma on my feet to long.

i am going to get a support band thing to see if that helps.
