    Hi,

    during the night I had really weird pains. I lie asleep on my left side and last night I felt as if my uterus was contracting but only on the left side. I also felt like I had a stitch in the middle under my breast bone.

    Anyone experienced this before

    PS when I got up to go to the toliet and returned it went away

    Many thanks

    Can't say I've ever experienced that hun but didn't want to read and run. Could it perhaps have been braxton hicks? x

    Since about 31 weeks ive been having a sharp stabbing pain just to the right, at the top of my uterus I'm guessing, it usually happens when I move from right to left side in bed, no matter how slow I do it, but it's started to get worse and more frequent, I'm really worried but baby keeps moving so I just hope it's nothing serious, it's enough to make me feel like crying :( I'm hoping it's just ligament stretching pain which does seem to come up a lot when I search for it on google.

    Thanks all.

    I'm just wondering if its our bodies getting ready for labour then. I've been having all sorts of weird sensations in the last week and the flow of discharge is to the point I've had to put on a towel lol!
    Was driving in the car today and suddenly got this really strong pushing sensation at the bottom of my uterus - it only lasted a minute but I think if i had been standing baby may have popped out to say hello.....ha ha xx

    At a guess i would say its some sort of BH or ligament stretching (this seems to be the answer they give for most pains!).....prob best to ask your MW though.

    It's scary, but I've come to terms with the fact that i'll have these pains on and off for the next 7 weeks, although something makes me think baby will come before his due date. What have your midwifes said??

    Hi
    I posted like this a few weeks ago, iv had the same, and it comes and goes. My MW said its just bits of me stretching inside, but get it checked out if your worried. Mine comes back if I sit in one psoition for too long too but the nighttime one was more painful, the sitting pain is more like musclular
