Is it normal to feel this way when getting out of bed?

Postby Jasmine1 » Tue Sep 17, 2013 10:23 pm

I'm now 8+ weeks and since about 7 weeks I noticed that when I get up from bed in the morning my abdomen (middle) would be a little painful and feels really heavy. I don't think it's round ligament pain, because it's not on the sides.

DH said maybe my uterus is a bit stretched when I get up, causing the pain, and since I'm carrying 2, the change may be more prominent. Could that be it? It's not very painful but it's like that everyday and I'm a bit worried.

Would a full bladder also contribute to this?

First off congrats!!! I'm not going to be much help because my memory is shot and I can't remember back that far but my guess is it is probably the stretching. Try to relax. The heaviness is honestly probably the bloating that happens so early on. There is a lot of change going on in your body right now and from my experience with IVF you are just so much in tune with your body that you pay attention to everything :) I wouldn't worry too much about it unless it becomes intense pain. Good luck, this journey is amazing!!!!

Bring it up to your doctor if you're worried but it sounds like round ligament pain. It's normal in pregnancy and even more so in a twin pregnancy because your uterus has to stretch a lot more.

Jasmine omg congrats on your twins!!!! I remember you from the ttc ivf boards!!!

I agree that it's most likely just the stretching that comes with a twin pregnancy, probably rlp..and a full bladder may actually contribute. I always tried to keep my bladder as empty as possible (especially later on Bc a full one caused me BH contractions). This was quite a feat however since I was drinking a gallon+ of water a day. I probably spent a quarter of my pregnancy in the bathroom lol

But just make sure when you get up out of bed you go slowly, and stand up slowly, it helps.

Thanks, it makes me feel better.

You're so right about about being in tune with our body from IVF...actually ever since TTC which is 6 yrs ago I've been very sensitive to every little twinge in my tummy! :roll:

I'm saving this question for my next prenatal visit... I did ask the nurse on the phone. Of course she says it's nothing to be worried about...but basically everything is normal to them!

I thought round ligament pain is only on the sides??

Thanks JJsBump! :D You have such good memory! I'm afraid to happy just yet because of my past pregnancies... :( This is all too good to be true....I worry everyday and hope I could soon reach the 12 weeks mark.

Yes it's hard to keep an empty bladder esp when they tell you to drink as much water as you can. I don't tend to pee frequently in the day but I don't know why I now have to pee at least once in the night (feeling I'm going to burst) and then in the morning my bladder is still very full. :!: If my bladder is pushing on my uterus then wouldn't I also pee frequently during the day?? Strange...
