Does anyone else pull their tummy muscles if they sneeze, laugh, even walk too fast?!

    Hi

    I'm 22 weeks and I've noticed that I pull my "under-the-bump" tummy muscles a lot! If I don't crunch up when I sneeze they hurt, yesterday I laughed too hard and ended up nearly screaming in pain I pulled them so bad! Sometimes if I'm walking downhill I seem to pull the tummy muscles just above each leg, does anyone else has this? Does it mean I need to wear some sort of supportive band or something?

    Thanks!

    Yes, sneezing is the worst! My sneezes sounds like,
    "Achoo owwwwwww!"

    Thats exactly how my sneezes sound! Haha!! No one tells you about this sort of stuff!

    Think my husband thinks I'm pathetic but it really hurts, the amount of noise I made yesterday after laughing at the Apprentice and then nearly screaming in pain probably doesn't bode well for the birth...I'm such a wimp!!

    Lol, it's true though, it really does hurt. It's like a sharp stab right to your belly! Men will just never understand SO MANY of our pains. :roll:

    I'm only 16 weeks now and have already had that for a while. If I get up too fast or sneeze, the bellow-the-bump area feels stretched and painful! Guessing it's worse on days where my bloat is bigger lol!

    Oh man, sneezing really does it for me. And I sneeze like 5 times a day so it's just a bunch of fun. Haha.

    I find if I bend over to sneeze, I can avoid the muscle pull. Worth a try!

    Sneezing really is the worst! I also get it when I roll over at night, or get up from sitting to quickly...I always feel like I've ripped something! :wacko:

    Yep I get it too, have done since around the 4 week mark, its the one thing that made me test. I agree with an above Poster, if I bend over or crouch over it doesn't seem to happen. :)

    Haha! Well I'm glad I'm not the only one, it is really annoying I've had it from really early on too so I guess I will have to remember it as a pregnancy symptom for next time! I find as well that crouching over helps :)
