    Default Pulled stomach muscles?

    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?

    I am a little late but my bet is stomach muscle/ligament.

    Not sure if you can do anything if it is torn etc. I would speak to midwife. If it is still sore maybe a trip to the physio would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    I spoke to health direct and the lady wasn't very helpful but I didn't want to wake my midwife. I'll call her today.

    I think it's the muscle so I may call the physio, luckily updated my extras cover yesterday and they waived my waiting periods so I can get it covered now!

    So sorry op. Sounds awful. I agree with above.... Prob muscular and call physio BUT I just want to remind you that your midwife will never want you to put off calling her if you are worried. Sometimes a quick call then everybody's mind is eased and you can all sleep well.

    Also I'm dying to hear what your grandma said!

    I told her what we were calling DD and she screamed hysterically thinking I was joking. Then when she realised I was serious she was trying to dig herself out of the hole and it was hilarious to watch!

    It's Elsie 💕

    Oh and my stomach feels a lot better today. Hoping it was just a sprain or twist and I feel 100% tomorrow
