Hey everyone... the past few days well 4 days, I've noticed that my belly is kinda tender to the touch.. well my lower stomach.. is that something I should be worried about??? Its not really painful, its just kind of tender.. also when I sneeze or cough I get a sharp pain in one of my sides.. its never just one side, it varies from one to the other..
ME TOOOOO!!! I thought I was the only one...about the sneezing and coughing I get a sharp pain that comes from the middle and straight down to the point where I can feel the pain where I've never felt pain before...lol...I dunno why that happens but it scares the s**t outta me...I'm scared to sneeze or cough because of that. As for the tender part I think that's normal...my stomach was a bit tender too, and my doctor said it was normal, because now you have a life growing inside of you so your stomach is gonna feel different...
Your body is going to feel and do so many weird things over the next 6 mo it's unbelievable! Anytime I felt something weird or different I just wrote everything down and took the questions to my doc appt's so I didnt forget to ask. Wait until it feels like the baby is sticking it's fingers out your butthole! That was fun...:0)
I'm sure many many wierd things will happen throughout this pregnancy, I have people tell me all the time, just wait till later and you'll realize just how many wierd things really happen.. I guess I'm just a little over worried because I had a miscarriage before.. and am scared of having another one.. I never thought I'd be wanting or happy to see a dr and I'm counting down the days till my next appointment.. I just wish I could relax a little more for mine and my baby's sake..
That sharp pain happens because something as forceful as a cough or sneeze over-stretches the ligaments supporting your uterus.
As for the tender tummy, pregnant women DO NOT LIKE their bellies to be smashed, smooshed, pushed on, etc. It's just a sensation no pregnant woman likes. That's why we have those nice maternity pants that are loose so as not to put too much pressure on the abdomen. You're NORMAL!
I have the same thing...I always get a little worried, but almost everyone that I talked to told me it was normal...I get them when I have to pee really bad too. I'm only about 7.5 weeks and I already don't like the feeling of pressure on my stomach...I had to buy a bunch of new looser pants....
