sapi - February 14

Has anybody else experienced this. I am in so much pain on m,y stomach that it is super sensitive to the touch- achey like. It feels like I went to the gym and have done 1000 sit ups. When I drink or eat anything it gets super crampy. On top of that I really crampy on my lower ab I think from gas. I'm so constipated that I have to take 2 stool softners every morning to strain to poop out one lil lump. Sorry if this is to much info. Every one that I talk to say oh your a first time mommy and everything is new and all you do is sit around and think about it. I'm not making this stuff up. I toss and turn all night from being in so much pain I dont get a wink of sleep. By the time the baby comes- I'm going to be totally and utterly exhausted! Anybody else experiencing this? Is it just GI complications or could this be something more serious? Thanks for your imput and for letting me vent. Jen

Being unable to sleep at this stage in the pregnancy is normal. As for the poop issue...make sure you're drinking a lot of water and getting enough fibre/veggies. Also, try taking metamucil once a day..I found for me this has really helped. I am 39w3d and my #2's have been especially loose and abundant. It may just be my body or because I nearing D-day (hopefully!!). Now..as for the pain you're feeling..sometimes my belly hurts (feels tender to the touch) which is normal, but it sounds like you're in a lot of pain. Call your doctor just to make sure all is well, but I think as long as you are still feeling movement from your baby then this could just be something you will have to deal with. It could be your ligaments stretching or menstral-type cramping (which is also normal). Good luck!
