    After googling and speaking to girls in 3rd tri I think I have this AWFUL pregnancy related issue a lot sooner than I should. Apparently it kicks in about 30 plus weeks but my uterus is as high as that now with having 3 babies.

    I feel like someone has broken my rib! You know under your boobs where your underwire pushes on your ribs? Well my uterus is there and it's pushing on my ribs and they feel bruised and broken. The pain is agony.

    I saw my friend yesterday who has twins and she confirmed it's my uterus pushing everything out of the way and that doesn't normally kick in til 3rd tri with one baby.

    I am gonna mention it to my consultant on Monday and see what she suggests and I will let you all know cos it is so painful! I can't cough, sneeze, laugh and it is worse at night but I seem to have had a growth spurt over night and it actually woke me up this morning!

    :( poor you, it will be worth it though for all those babies. When have you been told to expect to give birth (im guessing it will be sooner than with one baby?)

    totally off topic but was it you that was looking for crispy pancakes ages ago? x

    Yeah..That does hurt..I don't have it quite yet with these guys, but I know it's coming. Have you bought any kind of belly support belt yet? I don't know if it would help that,but I am feeling the spread, when your pelvic bones start to spread out, and it's painful..The belt helps..Oh, and I totally forgot you had three in there, not just two! Sorry about that!

    There was a thread about this the other day - seems even in second tri a couple of us are getting it, I think mine is because I'm pretty short and the baby is so high everything is just squished but multiply that by three -OUCH! Paracetamol and a super soft bed!
    :hugs:
