Achy heavy belly! Anyone else?
I had this a few times the other day, after walking in the heat back and forth to a friends house, then unpacking after a long trip. I was starting to get achy and realized that it was my good old friend braxton hicks starting up! Argh! I had them for about ten weeks before DD2 was born, but not this early! It was totally from over doing it and I got them again yesterday after I moved some furniture around. So shouldn't be doing that!
I had a ton of round ligament pain early on and about a month ago, my MW should me some massages I could do at home on my belly. They helped so much! I have almost no round ligament pain anymore! So, when I'm hurting, I lay down and love on my growing belly. It's helping a ton. I wouldn't mine getting a maternity belt though- just for those moments where you just want to hold your belly up, because it feels good- kwim?
