    Anyone else have an achey abdomen? The last couple of days my lower stomach feels kind of bruised inside - achey. Not period pains, definitely more like it's a muscular ache. The last few nights i've put a hot water bottle on and it seems to ease it. Just wondered if anyone else has had this?

    Or is it just normal, and because my stomach is getting heavier??

    I'm going to go and have my urine tested tomorrow at my local drop in centre just in case it's a UTI (though i have no other symptoms). Also wondering if, because i'm on bed rest this week and been lying on my side all day, maybe it's that?

    Every day it's a different bloody symptom!

    Oh, and the sharp pain up my bum was back this morning. Hurrah!

    yup, sometimes it feels like my stomach might rip off when i move too quickly :(

    def check it out if you are worried but i have had ligament pains so far think it's just everything straining and stretching.

    That's kinda what I was talking about the other day! Its gone now, but I've been a little more active, too. It just seemed to come after a lot of braxton hicks contractions.
