    Since pups been born we have put a mattress by pups bed and I basically lay there most of day monitoring them as mum keeps being too rough and hurting them....I get up from laying down position really quickly kinda swinging myself up like I'm doing a situp ( I'd never get up otherwise lol)...just wondering if it can harm baby at all, haven't felt no pain doing but I'm like getting up every 5mins mins or so...tummy has felt a little tender but that's about it

    It won,t harm baby, but it could ruin your stomach muscles, as baby grows your muscles seperate in the middle to make room, and if you do any sit ups or sit straight up from lying down, it makes the muscles part even further. The strain may slow down the recovery of the muscle tone after birth. It,s best to roll in your side and push yourself up with your arms. Xx
