Sore stomach... belly to big? MrsSinatra 1 child; 1 angel baby; Phoenix, Arizona 993 posts

So, today I noticed its nor my BIOS that cause the agonizing pain all the time. Its actually the size of my belly. When I roll over its like the weight of my stomach pulls every muscle out. It hurts so bad.



Has anyone else felt this before? I wish I could post a picture to show you how huge I am... but I'm on my phone. ;(



Is there anything I can do to help with the pain? Should I mention it to the Dr or just blow it off as normal?



Thanks.

Having the same here, but the bottom of my belly is more sore than the rest. My dr. said it's internal bruising from the baby kicking and such. :( It'll be over soon.

A lot of the time when I lay on my side my mid to upper back hurts really bad- I guess from my stomach pulling on all the muscles back there.

I feel you ): I had a belly band thing but I can't wear it now because I can't breathe!



The belly is very heavy. And now, she puts so much strain on my stomach it feels like she's separating the muscles in the middle. I can't see a difference, not a stretch mark or a divide under the skin, but it sure feels like it's happening.



I'm also very ready to have this kid! I don't understand it, but she's actually sitting higher at 36 weeks than EVER. I've actually got this (super sexy) flap of skin beneath the belly when before, I was just... full looking. She's like right under my ribs, I think she's lost lol.

Lol... the flap under your belly sounds like mine... it sucks.



Tell your daughter to get her ass down there. Lol. Ethan has been pretty well behaved... he's pretty damn low. Lol.

LOL! Totally NORMAL. With my twins my stomach was all out front and really pulled on my back. Everything hurt. Sleep with a pillow between your legs and under your belly. That will help for rest. As you are wandering about during awake hours, a pregnancy cradle "can" help. The end of pregnancy is ohhh sooo much fun. It will be over soon. Hang in there

That's what I've been doing... still sucks. Lol.



I actually have been finding myself sleeping on my back. Lol... I'm so uncomfortable on my sides now. ;(

Oh that makes sense... he is crazy active... and HUGE. So maybe it is some internal bruising. Cannot wait to have him already. Lol

A pillow under your belly would help immensly. Last night I tried to flip over and was almost 100% positive I tore something. I was almost in tears :(

I am just very short waisted. My son was a large carry too. Fortunately, he layed transverse most of it! lol I can't lie though, I would give anything in the world to be pregnant again. I loved being pregnant. even the throwing up part. I guess it is because I knew that my wish had finally been granted. After your LO is here, you will miss pregnancy too. :wink:

Oh yes, I've been feeling this way for awhile. I'm pretty big and baby's pretty big in there. My first son was just over 8lbs but I have a feeling this guy's going to be a bit bigger. My stomach and back muscles feel like I did a billion crunches. At night the only way I can get comfy is to lay further over almost onto the side of my belly so it doesn't pull so much. I have some hip dysplasia and back problems anyway so I'm pretty miserable. I just hope this little guy doesn't decide to stay in too much longer. I only have 4 days left til my due date. I only went overdue by 2 days last time so I'm hoping he takes after his brother and comes out on his own soon.
