Hi girls! Ok...im probably explaining this really badly, but here goes, for past week, every night, when lying down to go to sleep, i get this wierd feeling just under my sternum (br___tbone)...it feels like really hot or really cold kinda sensation and affects the area just under my br___ts in between ribs (about size of a plum)....its really uncomfortable and im wondering what it is. I was thinking maybe its my stomach being pushed up (tho im only 19.3 wks) and is maybe pushing on other organs that make it feel funny....not sure! It only happens when i lie on my sides, but seeing as i cant lie on back, or stomach, it seems i have no choice but to deal with it! Anyone else?

Could it be heartburn? I know with my first pregnancy I had never had heartburn before and did not know what it felt like, but it is very common during pregnancy.

Thanks Happymommy, you are correct. I asked my mum today and she told me it definately was heartburn (altho its more to do with gastric acids etc burning the oesophogas than heart due to relaxed stomach muscles and valves)....which is why i was confused as this pain wasnt near my heart, but a little more cental and further down! hehe...After doing my reading tho, appears its exactly as i describe. At least i found there are antacids i can take for it! Phew! Will try them tonight and hope they help! Thanks for response :)
