Hi, I am 36 weeks have have just split my tummy muscles open, probably because I am measuring 43 weeks. Has this ever happened to you and did they knit back together?
Thank you xxxx

It's actually quite common, although usually only happens to the mums who were quite slim before they got pregnant. I was a 14 before I got pregnant it's just I am so huge with this baby.

Oh no! I'm a size ten
Sounds horrible - I hope you're OK and not in any/too much pain.
I'd be tempted to check with midwife next time you see her.

Hi Debbie this has happened to me! Mw noticed it at about 16 weeks and has just got worse since then. Its really noticable when I trying to get laid down in the bath. Mw as assured me though that it is common and that they will knit back together after the birth! This and spd god I love being pregnant, lol! Tammi xxx

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
