Belly pain
married6_3_06 posted:
I woke up yesterday and since then the baby hasn't stopped moving!!! I know that should be a reassuring sign that he is healthy but by early afternoon my belly became so sore and tender to touch. Also my lower back is killing me. I am 29wks. I went through braxton hicks with my first son (7 years ago) and this pain doesn't really feel like that. Wondering if the pain is because of all the movement or maybe a lighter version of braxton hicks. I do have a doctor appt tomorrow morning so that puts me a little more at ease. I just can't seem to find a way to get comfortable and I'm wishing the baby would just go to sleep for atleast an hour.

Hi Married6_3_06,

My 3rd pregnancy was exactly like that. My son wouldn't stop kicking and never slept. I hope you are able to rest today.
