My belly has been having lots of sharp discomfort on the surface, and I can see that I've also got a whole bouquet of stretch marks forming, where the pains are. Baby is posterior and I think that his kicking in these new spots, on top of my being a very taught watermelon belly at this point, is causing it to happen in sharp spurts like this. I didn't have pain from stretch marks in my first pregnancy! It seems so bizarre! I'm wondering if anyone else is/has experienced this. Is it normal???
Also, I confess it's making me REALLY cranky. Partly the pain, but also the stretch marks. My first pregnancy (where I was 3 days late) I got away with just a few little stretch marks, that started basically at my due date. I sort of assumed it would be the same with this one. I'm still 10 days away from my due date still. Last time around I think I could have been Zen with the fact that it goes with the territory of being pregnant. I was ready for it. But this one being #2, I kind of figured I was in the clear and that somehow I could avoid this, but it's not looking that way. I am totally NOT feeling zen about it. Arrrrgggghhh. CRANKY.
