Tight tummy / Aches at night

Hi all,

I just wondered if anyone else gets a tight tummy whilst sleeping at night? When i turn over or move in the night my tummy sometimes feels tight and a bit uncomfortable. Did anyone else have this or am i just being extra paranoid??

Hi Knighty,

I get this at night time as well. It's sort of like a stretching, pulling feeling - a bit like a stitch. It's a bit uncomfortable whenever I turn over.

RE: Boobs!

Oh yes, my boobs were sooo sore during the 1st trimester.. a good fitting, supportive maternity bra helped.You will probably need to be measured more than once during your pg, as your boobs grow/shape changes. I also found wearing a sleep bra helped me....you can get them in mothercare.

My boobs were a bit sore all the way through, but definitely eased off after the 1st trimester.

Join the club, everytime I sat up I thought oh my goodness pain and the ichy nipples and the shooting pains, I dont know what thats all about., but the severity of the soreness comes and goes, sometimes unbelievable soreness, sometimes just sore. Glad to know that it gets a bit better later.

I found mine very sore in the first tri then it got a lot better in the 2nd tri , its only for the last few days i seem to have an attack of the itchy boobs , not sure why but there is always little niggles on and off to contend with but the girls are so right a good bra is gonna be the answer to the majority of your prayers...

My boobs got huge (was quite small to start with) and kept getting bigger with my 1st...they weren't just as sore after first few months, but most definately got bigger!
Wasn't quite as dramatic 2nd time...but pretty massive still, and this time I have only just moved up a cup size now, approaching 12 weeks.
Lots of trips to M&S for bra measuring to make sure in the correct size and a close fitting vest in bed helped me.
Do you find you are more tender by the end of the day? Mine seem to be slightly bigger at night than in the morning so not sure why that is! My tummy is the same though (looks bigger at night) so maybe just gravity taking effect or water retention or something!

Hi Knighty, I seem to get a stretching sensation just when I am on my side, if I sit up it goes, I've also been quite bloated at night too. Very attractive! Suki x

No way, someone could you run into you and knock you over, I went ice skating a couple of years ago and fell with a right bang and everyone cringed. Its just not worth the risk.

While a bad fall could be risky to 'you', it doesn't mean that a miscarriage is likely. Your baby is very well protected within fluid, tissue, muscle and fat (sorry if you're skinny). A jolt is highly unlikely to shake your baby free from where it's implanted and in the first trimester your uterus is still protected by your pelvis. The chances of a bad fall leading to a miscarriage are quite low.

Having said that, it's normal and wise to want to abstain from anything that's likely to result in a fall on a hard surface. If you went on to experience and pain or bleeding you would automatically blame the ice skating and for that reason it's probably better to decide not to go.

Besides, ice skating's cold and miserable, next time get them to arrange a day at a beauty spa!! :D

I think i had made my mind up already but wanted some re-assurance i will still go (as taking DSS and DSD) but think i will just watch from the sides ... i may have to find a good excuse though as i am only 5 weeks and don;t want to tell anyone yet!!

HI KNighty
It's very normal to be moody. I cried and got angry (mostly with DH) for absolutely no reason. I felt terrible about it but hey your DH will understand, it's for a good reason.
I caught DH telling my cousin not to visit after 6.00 pm " coz she's at her worst then". :D
