Are you having muscle pain in your lower abdomen? I am having it so bad, it’s like I did a tonne of exercise, or something, at either side, as low as my belly goes…. it *is* sort of on my scar area but as soon as I rest and lie down it goes away so I figure it must be muscular. I feel like I am spending half my days lying down!!!!
Claire - I had this from about 20 weeks, it was agony. But yes, if I lay down for a while it faded. Sometimes it felt as if someone was literally pulling me in half from my groin to my mid tum but along my sides? Particularly bad if I did anything strenuous. By strenuous I mean walk bend, pick up a doll, anything really beyond slow wombling around…..
Gem - I did get swollen fingers and toes the last few weeks but they weren’t painful. More uncomfortable as they felt really fat and awkward, like I couldn’t close my hands or grip tightly. Yours sounds really bad though, I wish I had some advice beyond applying heat maybe?
