I feel like I've been punched in the stomach!


I don't know what's going on, I have had bad tummy cramps for the past few days and generally been a little sore in my lower abdomen but I took some paracetamol and finally got to sleep at 5am. I've woken up again (it's now 6.45am) with not so much cramps but just a very bruised feeling stomach. When I tried to sit up in bed it was agony, as if I'd been punched and the area was really sore from that What could this be?

ETA: Also have complete insomnia and my bowels feel funny although there isn't much actually different going on

I think it sounds like baby dropping and things getting ready. I've had some cramps and a nearly constant dull ache (like period pain) since Sunday. I'm not worried about it personally but if you are or if something feels wrong it's probably best to check with the midwife.

I didn't get any weird feeling though like as if I could suddenly breathe like you're meant to get, and LO doesn't seem to be in a different position Would it be very noticable if they had engaged?

It might be worth phoning the midwife and getting an appointment for reassurance

my stomach feels that way everytime LO goes head-down. she is still switching back and forth at this point, but when she has got her head down, i sure know it!
