Stomach feels bruised???


Hey Ladies

Im 23 weeks today and I noticed on friday my upper stomach feels like its bruised when I move a certain way. There is no bruise there, and it doesnt hurt when I touch it, only when I like bend down or twist or something.

Have any of you felt this before? Should I be worried or do you think its just
my ligaments stretching?

This is my second baby, but I just cant remember if I had this with my first or not.

Thanks ladies

Sounds like stretching to me.
Today I feel like i've done too many sit ups, while I haven't done anything lately.
Guess my baby girl is having a growth spurt.

I would guess it's just the ligaments and muscles being pushed out of the way and stretching. You're uterus is taking up a lot of space in there so there's definately going to be some tenderness and achiness. Don't worry too much about it, i remember getting that in my last pregnancy and I had it really bad with my son, he was so big he was squishing everything! LOL Good luck, I found that sometimes a warm bath would help relax the muscles so they didn't ache so much.

Hey, I had this like a week ago. Spoke to a midwife who said its probably stretching and as long as I dont get any bleeding, extreme pain then not to worry. It disappeared within a few days.
