    Hoping someone can put my mind at ease, I will explain this as best i can.


    Yesterday afternoon it started like i felt really bloated, and as if baby was pressin on my bowels so was feelin very sore and painful.

    It got worse as the night went on and i ended up havin some lactulose to see if goin to the toilet would sort it. I'm not sure if this is trapped wind and constipation or somethin else

    Everytime i pass wind, it's very smelly, but the pain is actually stil there. I stil havent managed to go to the toilet for a number 2


    The pains im gettin are all lower bump, tender to the touch and on standin or movin, i seem to have a lot of pressure around my back passage.

    baby is movin around ok but i dont know whether to just wait til this passes or see the doctor?

    what do you think?

    Thanks girls

    Just call L&D they will advise if any action is required, they may just ask you to pop in to get checked out, there is no harm in making the call...

    I had that when I was really badly constipated! I think you are prob just constipated. Try drinking LOTS of water and if it helps to soothe the pain hold a hot water bottle against your bump (but not boiling water!) Call your doctor just in case though I think. I do feel for you as I was constipated VERY bad a few weeks back for a whole week which has now resulted in piles! Joy.

    yeh thats what i think it is too to be honest. when he moves and presses on my bowel thats when the pain is at its worst, or when i stand up and the gravity pulls him down. ive taken some more lactulose and jst sat on the sofa drinkin water and may try and get some more sleep, didnt sleep well at all last night cause of it

    thanks girls. the advice is much appreciated xxx

    Well.....

    The lactulose finally worked and had a good clear out (sorry tmi), but the pain is stil there, and i have an extremely tender spot on the left hand side of my bump.

    every baby movement is very sore, and a lot of pressure in my back passage. passing wind isnt relieving the pain or pressure either.

    I also have backache, i have just taken a couple of paracetamol in hope that i can control the pain for a little bit and hopefully it'l ease off

    i think if it carries on again thru the night i wil be contactin the hospital in the morning to see if there's somethin more goin on.
