    Hey
    Don't know if anyone is up to help. Just been woken up by massive pain in my upper adomonials. The pain is constant so not bh, it's right in middle inbetween bump and boobs and going down slightly. It really hurts and in tears but not sure if it is just gas and indegestion? Took gaviscon but not helped. Have googled it and worried could be pre clampsia but had no other symptoms what so ever and baby has been kicking away still... Help?! Xxx

    It sounds to me like it could be trapped wind... I know it's a higher than usual place to get it but with everything being pushed up it may be that. Try having a gentle walk around your house/flat as that will help move it if it is that. If its still there and as bad in half an hour or so I'd call triage and ask them what they think. I don't think it would be pre eclampsia though if you've had no other symptoms. Hope you feel better ASAP xxx

    Yeah I noticed that a while ago and didn't know why it said that?! Very strange!

    Well I thought it had got better while drinking my hot drink but got bad again. I really don't want to go in as feel like an idiot going in for trapped wind! Haha.

    Saw your post about your dog, what a good doggie they are! You know you are safe with them around :) xx

    ohh I never noticed it before? ahh well

    thing is if it doesn't ease you might be aswell getting checked as it may not just be trapped wind and you'll get piece of mind then as well as some relief won't you.
    not ideal though hospital being 45 mins away it's abit of a trek mines about 25-30 mins away and a pain in the ass :/

    can you wait until baby comes? I can't I keep thinking ohhh 7 weeks and hel be ready then he can come :)

    They were really nice and said its either wind, baby lying in very awkward position pushing all up or pulled muscle. She said it doesn't sound like anything sinister. To try and get comfortable and see how I am in morning. Am now set up in spare room so don't disturb oh and try and get sleep. Feel bad for oh though as he is tree surgeon and needs his sleep, don't want him having any accidents!! Thanks for chatting, nice to know someone else is up! Haha xx
