    Hi Hayley

    I had stabbing pains in my belly when I was pg with Isaac and it was just my food going through me. For some reason I couldn't digest certain things when I was pregnant, especially meat, and some nights the pains were so bad I thought I was in labour. I drank lots of water to flush my system and it helped. I told the midwives at the hospital and they said to come straight to the hospital if I had any bleeding or if the pains were really bad but it never came to that. The only other pains I had were braxton hicks but they were more like tightening pains and they make your tummy go hard so you kind of know when they happen.

    Hope you are ok

    Lou :)

    on the back of what lou said, if thats what was wrong with her you might need to try soups (nightmare in this weather) or liquidised food.
    If you are in any doubt just go back to the hospital,

    hope you feel better soon

    Thanks... yeh it could just be the food going through me... i never thought of that :think: the midwife said it could be because the baby is breech and he is stretching all my stomach muscles more than usual but they will keep an eye on me and if it gets worse im 2 go straight back in. she thinks if it stays the same and im no better in the next few weeks they could deliver me early :shock: so not ready lol so fingers crossed everything will be ok!! :pray:

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too. And don't worry about labour, honestly its the best experience you'll ever have! I can't wait to do it all again :)

    Take care of yourself

    to be honest im not even worried about being in labour lou, i really hope i can have natural labour... the midwife doesnt think this little man will turn (hes breech right now) and ill end up having a cesarean :shock: thats what im really worried about... its like major surgery and it really scares me more than anything else! im in a lot of pain today :( think i will be going back to midwife this afternoon cuz im sick of being in this pain now :cry:
