    For the past few weeks, LO's movements have left me in pain. I've been left feeling bruised- no bruises obviously, just feels like I am on the inside. And sometimes I have to ask OH not to prod my tummy cos I'm scared baby will wake up and start moving and hurting me :(
    I feel every single movement. Not many kicks anymore, just getting comfy and shifting around (really dont think he's got much room anymore).

    Don't know why I've even wrote this, but it's getting me down and I don't know why. Feeling LO move is meant to be a happy moment, but past few weeks it's just hurting and me going 'oww' all the time clutching my tummy.
    And then I remember I've got another 10 weeks left of it!! Don't know if I can cope with it, especially if they get even stronger and harder!

    Rant now over :x

    I'm the same. Sometimes I feel like little Chips foot is going to come out of my tummy. Doesn't hurt persay just makes me stop what I'm doing for a min. Makes me jump when I'm driving, not cool x

    I've had that for a wee while to. It's almost like she didnt have enough room. I seen to have popped a bit more over the last week and it's eased off a wee bit. Xxx

    Saying all that I would worry more if the movements were minimal ;)

    It's getting me down, and sometimes I actually start to worry when I know baby is awake.. I worry about what movements I'm going to feel. It's like he's scraping his knees or elbows right up against my skin as hard as possible.
    I know there's nothing I can do but just accept it, but knowing I've got about 10 weeks left of it doesn't help!

    Don't get me wrong I love him to bits already, and love knowing he's ok, it's reassuring! But it's just so harsh and painful :(

    I'm so sorry to hear that you feel this way. Maybe you could try to listen to classical music? I've heard that it's suppose to calm them down...don't know if I believe it, but might be worth a try!

    :hugs:

    I understand how you feel. I went through this too. I just wanted to cry. I loved knowing baby was ok but it really hurt. It has eased up considerably though!xx

    Pip is like that most of the time. Bloody hurts when he decides he is lying on the wrong side so does a 180! Definately starting to get uncomfortable now

    I have been having this last couple days, belly is gettin so tight and he seems to be movin a lot, and i just grimace. got 11 wks of this potentially and he is gonna triple in size in that time, but apparently part of the tightness im gettin at the top of my stomach is where the uterus is expanding, so im hopin he will have more space and wont hurt me so much!

    lol the movements dont hurt me as yet but i have a sore pelvis constantly like her head or legs are nudging the bone and the top of my bump is a bit painful. sort or like pins and needles feeling and like something is pressing on my ribs. it deffo feels like theres no space left in there so i hope something expands and gives in soon or i may be terribly uncomfortable. its making my heartburn unbearable and yesterday i was throwing up acid and feeling really miserable and sorry for myself as i ghugged useless gaviscon and suffered. nicked a couple of omeprazole off my mum to kill the acid til i can go the docs and get my own back so i feel a lil better today but bump is still terrible uncomfortable and she has been wriggling round loads since yesterday as if she cant get comfy either.

    Aww bless ya! Heartburn sucks doesn't it! I've had flickers of it over the last week or so, but I know it could definately develop and get much worse if it wants to! I've tried those Gaviscon chewy tablets but they didn't seem to work. Tried drinking soda water as suggested by my mum aswell but don't really notice a big difference.

    Can u tell what position your LO is laid in?
    Mine seems to be constantly transverse and it feels like I'm being really stretched out! I keep hoping that he'll move into the head down position and hope it's a bit more comfortable for both of us! But he seems to be having none of it at the moment!

    ive got gaviscon and it does nothing! today im dosed on omeprazole and its done the job. im not sure what position my LO is cos my anterior placenta really muffles the feel of baby but aching in my pelvic bone and top of bump and the kicks / hits i get seem to indicate either head up or down but at least its in that line lol. dont think shes gone across the bump yet. just means i get rib blows and pelvis hits too lol
