    Hi ladies,

    I'm 16 weeks and 2 days with non fraternal twins and I am suffering (Probably should add that this is my/our first pregnancy)!!!! My belly is so so so painful I feel like I have ripped my stomach muscles. It's particularly bad right above my pubic bone where my abs are so tight from the babies growing. I feel like my belly is saying "No, I won't let you grow anymore!" It feels like my muscles are fighting to let their shape go.

    I have always been sporty and have very strong abs. I started at 26" and now I'm at 38" so I have grown quite a bit.

    Is anyone else going through this because I'm really uncomfortable. I had to have a day off today because I was up most of the night from being uncomfortable.

    Also I find it uncomfortable to bend forward or sit up straight, is it just because there is now two babies in the way growing, I expected this but not until later on...

    Please help! I'm so tired and frustrated!

    Nicky:coffee:

    Didn't want to read-and-run, but I hope you get this sorted <3

    I struggle/uncomfortable bending down or getting up etc already, with only ONE baby.. I guess some people start this stage a hell alot' earlier than others.

    Maybe hot baths and stuff to relax your muscles will help? xxx

    Hi I know how you are feeling, it should get better but there will always be periods where it will really hurt, I have good days and bad ones. You will eventually get used to it. Congratulations on your twins :)

    It feels good to know that I'm not alone! I am really enjoying having a bump and I don't want to sound unappreciative because I know so many people struggle to concieve etc but I'm so frustrated! I don't want to start relying on paracetamol so might try a hot water bottle tonight as the baths ease it for a bit (well at least until I get to sleep).

    Thanks for replying ladies! Never been on forums beofre and felt nervous no one would reply hee hee :blush:
