Growing pains during pregnancy

I am 22 weeks pregnant and today I experienced the most painful stitch,spasm above my tummy. My mid-wife told me to go to hospital. The ran lots of tests, heard baby's heart beat and all is OK - thankfully. The doctor thinks it is my uterus growing and ligaments stretching. Pain has eased up but it comes and goes.

Just wondered if anyone has gone through anything similar and how you have coped with it.


  • Yes!! it hurts so much. Not much you can do it will come and go throughout. Just take paracetomol and have nice baths. Try not to tense up when its happening as it makes it worse! (I know easier said than done) x
