Good afternoon and happy new year, my small issue is that I have a cold and I'm constantly sneezing and I'm at the point since yesterday where my tummy is in pain and I am not sure if this is normal and if baby is ok or any harm being caused, I'm 4 months along, anyone had this issue? Or friends? Thanks.

Sneezing & Pain

I had this. Where is the pain? Mine was kind of up under my ribcage. I also used to get pain if I picked the kids up. Like a sudden tearing kind of pain that would then be a little tender afterwards. I thought it was a hernia but a few weeks after the birth it went away.

Hello the pain is on the sides of my tummy. My concern is if the baby is in danger or if anything can happen that could harm myself or baby inside the sac. I know it sounds silly, but I'm just concerned.

I saw a physio last week for a range if things, this was one of them. Sneezing and attempting to contract stretched stomach muscles really fast hurts like hell!!
If you can hold your belly or knees up to protect it - great, but sneezes come on pretty quick. She gave me a belly band type thing to give extra support to the bottom of my stomach.

Thanks butterflyma, I do hold my tummy and I look silly but the pain as I sneeze is terrible.

The band I was given is basically a large version of those elasticated compression bandages.
I don't wear it a lot but if I wear it for a few hours during the day my stomach muscles aren't as...er.... Worn out n tired at night iykwim?

Ok, it sounds good, I just let my stomach have it's own way, ha ha, like I mentioned previously my main concern would be baby inside and harming it.

Early in my pregnancy I had a lot of aches n pains in my tummy including when coughing & sneezing.
It's my 4th bub but a big age gap & I think it was due to growing & stretching to make room for bub as it's gone away now

If you're in extreme pain and it's worrying you then, hell yes, go see your dr.
Pain without a reason that you can pinpoint should be checked out.
To me it does sound like your belly muscles stretching cause there's a lovely baby getting bigger in there, and they're not used to it.
Rest up and chat to your midwife/dr if you're worried - good luck
