Hi, I am 35 and 11 weeks pregnant, I am hoping someone can reassure me!  I have had 5 previous miscarriages and a baby who was born prem and passed away due to complications.

I have already had problems with this pregnancy with bleeding which was caused by a heamorhage.  I am really stressed out and worried so I am forever checking for bleeding and constantly worried that something will go wrong.  This pregnancy is different from all the others in that I have morning sickness and breast pain which is good (never had this with others) but I also have a lot of pain which is pretty uncomfortable.. it is in my lower abdomen I dont know if this is normal as I have never experienced this kind of pain with the other pregnancies?  My midwife said its stretching pains.  Can stretching pains be so uncomfortable? sometimes I literally feel like the baby will drop out and i have to sit down.


  • I'm sorry you've had such bad luck previously! Have you got your 12 week scan soon? Good luck xx

  • Hi Carioke, thank you for your reply. My 12 week scan is next week, I am really excited but also very nervous I am literally counting down the hours!.

    Its the pain that is worrying me I dont know if it is 'normal'?.

  • Everyone's different I suppose! Easy to say but try not to worry and think positively. I had a mmc last April, now 7 weeks pregnant and trying to think positive thoughts xx

  • Hi Sammy , I have the pains you are describing , awful aren't they , sure it is stretching though , if you can lie down on the opposite side of the pain I find that helps , 21 weeks tomorrow n still worry most days , hope you feel better soon , try not to worry , easier I know x x

  • good luck Muskan! I hope everything's ok hun xx

    how are you Sammy? xx

  • Hi, Sorry for the late reply.. I am doing o.k thank you so far so good.. I am 14 weeks now and had my 12 week scan a few weeks ago which was amazing!!!.  I still get the pains I mentioned previously, I get them when i have been on my feet for longer than 30 minutes... I try to rest and this helps but the pain can get pretty bad and it scares me it also limits what I can do so any shopping trips e.t.c are pretty short.

  • Hi I'm really happy for you my pregnancy was an ectopic pregnancy and that finished by doc. They gave me the injection bcz I cann't continue the pregnancy image lot of luv n hugs for u and ur baby image

  • Hi Muskan, I am really sorry to hear this, I have lost many babies in the past and I know how hard it can be  xxx Please don't lose hope.  Lots of love x
