Post subject: Aches and Pains
I was wondering if itís normal to have general aches and pains in the stomach and breast areas during pregnancy. Iím not having any strong pains, but enough to make me uncomfortable.
Theyíre usually in different areas, except one persistent pain that keeps happening under my left breast and seems to come back every few days. I donít know if that is normal.

how far on is your pregnancy now?
pregnancy does cause all sorts of aches and pains in people, but if your really worried have a chat to your midwife, she wont mind and they have women asking questions all of the time. im sure everything is just fine though.

its petty normal ladies. its so scarey i know but you have to remember that a non-pregnant uterus is so small it sits behind ur pubic bone and during pregnancy it has to grow all the way up to ur brest bones - that is goin to come with some dull aches and pains.
and ur brests will all start to produce milk, which means a huge amount of horomones flyng around and liquid entering tiny ducts that wasnt there before. its all normal.
when i was pregnant the slightest ache and pain used to panic me. the only time things arent normal is when there are tomach cramps that hurt and arent like ache anymore or they become stomach cramps. and of course if theres any blood spots or bleeding.
any worries or general questions u have, please dont be afraid to contact ur midwife -thats what shes there for.
enjoy ur pregnancies
