Belly stretching
Does anyone feel like they can feel their belly stretching?

This week it's been semi-uncomfortable, almost feeling like it just can't stretch anymore and may split open. :eek:

Please tell me this is normal. I think baby must be growing a lot this week. I've been starving and exceptionally exhausted.

Re: Belly stretching
It is normal! It's a very weird uncomfortable feeling, isn't it?

I was feeling the same way last week - including the horrible hunger and the exhaustion (I gained 4 pounds :blink: ). Baby must be having a big growth spurt.

I feel SO much better this week. Hang in there. ((hugs))

Re: Belly stretching

Re: Belly stretching
yes I have been there too. Hang in there and be sure to rest when you can this week- growing a baby is exhausting!

Re: Belly stretching
Yes, I've felt it too and it can be really uncomfortable. I feel mostly in my lower belly. I swear sometimes I look down to see if my skin split open because that's what it feels like.

Re: Belly stretching
I'm glad it is normal, but am sorry you guys all have to feel this way too. It is a REALLY crazy feeling!

I've looked down to make sure it hasn't split open, too. :lol:

Re: Belly stretching
YES!!!! At night after dinner big time!!! I feel like my belly is going to burst open!!! It is the worst feeling ever. I can relate :-)

Re: Belly stretching
OH YES !!!

Especially when I go to lay down at night ... I really feel the pull.
Sometimes after I eat ... I get the stretching/tight feeling too.

But I have to say ... I kinda like it ... it lets me know that things are progressing along !

Re: Belly stretching
Robin, I agree. It's uncomfortable, but definitely reassuring that she's growing in there. :D

Re: Belly stretching
Yep, I just went and picked up some Burt's Bees belly butter, and it's very soothing when I get those! I was out of cocoa butter and REALLY needing it, too. This is a real nice product, I've discovered.
Hugs to you and your growing belly!
