I can't sleep because of my back hurting and some braxton hicks contractions so I'm online tonight/this morning reading lots of pregnancy message boards! Something jogged my memory about some pregnancy related pain I was having a few weeks ago that I forgot about because it went away! Just thought I would back track a little a document it. . . you know, for the sake of historical records.
Around Thanksgiving (Nov 25) I had a REALLY sore spot on the side of my belly. Not on my skin, but underneath/inside there on my uterus itself! It was really tender to the touch like a bruise and also hurt pretty bad when I would have a contraction. I'd never heard anybody complain about this before, so I of course immediately assume it's the worst case scenario- my placenta is separating from the uterine wall and DISASTER is coming!
Turns out, people get these "sore spots" and it's just a result of the baby putting a lot of pressure on one part of the uterus and stretching it a little too fast. It went away within probably a week of me noticing it and hasn't happened again since- good riddance! I guess the moral of the story is- if you're pregnant now, or are sometime in the future- everything that's happening to you is probably pretty normal!
