Earlier tonight at dinner my grandma made me laugh so hard I a) almost peed my pants and b) started coughing uncontrollably (have had a lingering tickly cough for the last few days). I'm now lying in bed with the sorest stomach ever and I'm a bit worried. It feels a bit like I've pulled a muscle. It's on the right side of my belly button and it hurts to lie on either side and obviously I'm not supposed to sleep on my back.
Baby is still moving about fine but it's so sore it hurts to get up, to move around much, to sit. It doesn't help that every time I cough it seems to exacerbate it.
Does it sound like a muscle problem? I'll call my midwife tomorrow if it's still like this, I feel like I've either pulled or torn my right abdominals.
And is there anything I can do besides take Panadol to help?
