tight/pulling feeling in left abdomen


never had this one before lol

felt it mildly when i moved during my sleep and have felt it since i woke up. i cant locate the feeling with my finger, it feels like its coming from one place but then when i press it feels like its somewhere else, all on my left side though and below or inline with the belly button but not close to it.

when i rub around the area it can feel a little tender like im pressing a bruise, its not a cramp and its not a tightening, just more of a pulled or pulling feeling, or like im being nipped .. really hard to explain

any ideas what it could be?

Its 1.45am here and i cant even go to bed. I feel like ive got a HUGE stitch across the lower right side of my bump going half way across my back. If i hadnt have given birth before i would think it was contractions! Its kinda deep but feels along the bones. Mine feels like my muscle is pulling, literally stretching, i think bubs is leaning on the area.

I get what your experiencing too, sore spots. When i had my scan 2 weeks ago,when he put the probe near my belly button it was so sore. It was because she was so close to the skin (her back is to my stomach) that it was really sensitive.

Thanks hun ... yeah im thinking its because of his position. ive been told about 3 times hes head down, but i feel movements absolutley all over, so maybe its one of his hands or something.

Yeh same here. Lo is head down but i feel movement all over. Sometimes im worried her head is up again but i still feel the pressure in my pelvis so i doubt she has moved. But definetly position of the baby can cause stretching pains and sore spots. Especially if you have a tight bump ( no extra meat, all baby) i was like this with my son too, so i felt everything and it hurt alot more.

Hope you feel better soon, just dont stress over the pains though. It is just bubs position and stretching
