    Any of you girls get like a stitch pain on your belly?
    had some last night and they have come back, seem to go when im laying down just when im sat upright. Its on all my left side (dont know whether its trapped wind TMI) or just general stretching.

    anyone else get this? i have noticed last few days my belly has balooned! x

    I had this loads yesterday, it felt like I had a bubble of air on my left side near my groin, I could barely stand up! The same thing woke me up the other night. I'm couldn't decide what it was, but it was like a combination of wind and a stitch! Hope it's nothing sinister! I put it down to all the pushing and squashing that is going on down there x

    Think my stomach has popped out a bit more since the pains, no more skinny non-elasticated waist jeans for me for some time!
    Rubbish that you're at work, especially on a day like this. It's going to last for at least a week though, hope you have some time off to enjoy it! X

    I have had the same thing yesterday and today, felt like a stitch mostly on my left side. And today I feel a bit whale like, just been out and a friend of mine told me how pregnant I look today!

    Ive had the same stitch pain left side, apparently the uterus leans lightly to the left & its ligaments stretching & nothing to worry about. Not nice is it

    Sounds like round ligament pain, which is totally normal as your uterus stretches to accommodate bub!

    I've been getting this too! Never had it with my first, but I guess I do far more bending, lifting, stretching than I did before, running after a 16 month old! All on the left side. Good to hear it's normal.
