1st-Jan-2008 03:45 pm - Pregnancy "Symptom" Question
Hello all,

I'm almost 19 weeks pregnant with my first and I'm having some crazy pain that I can't seem to find in any of my books. Basically, every morning at 6 or 7am, I wake up with intense, cramping pain in my ribs and back. It extends from, say, my oblique muscles in my abs all around to the back, middle ribs.  Intensely painful, it is nearly impossible to get a nice, full breath in. I can't really lie still because I'm fairly vibrating with muscle cramped-ness.  My voice gets shaky, I'm so tight.  So despite the fact that I am forever sleepy and always ready for a nap, I hardly look forward to bed anymore, since I always wake up in pain.

Otherwise, it's been a beautiful, easy pregnancy.

Is this something any of you has experienced?

Edited: this doesn't feel like a digestive issue at all; purely muscular.

...for determining the sex of the baby. We're not planning on finding out until it's born, but I thought it might be fun to compile a list of all the wives' tales and see how many I could find. Maybe it would turn into a fun game at the shower!

Mission Statement of Natural Pregnant

Our mission is to bring together women who are like-minded in their approach to pregnancy, birth and even what they strive for after the birth.

We encourage women to be intelligent and educated about pregnancy and choices to be made for preparation for birth and beyond. Within this community you can post updates to your pregnancy, experiences, share photos (always under a cut, please) and of course post questions.

This pregnancy community is pro-breastfeeding.
We are anti-induction unless medically necessary.
We do not support circumcision

This community is not the same as

naturalbirth . If you need advice or to find sources for a natural childbirth, that is the community to join. Obviously there is some overlap, but mainly this community was initiated to give women a place to get to know one another who share a natural approach to pregnancy and beyond. However you are more than welcome to discuss your birth plans and choices.

Some Light Ground Rules: 
  • All posts are automatically made friends only.
  • Please put all long posts under a cut as well as photos or videos
  • Birth stories welcomed but keep them under a cut and give a brief description
  • Be respectful of others but feel free to be honest
  • Ask questions, post information, post resources, keep it related to pregnancy, birth, postpartum and babywise
