Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Im 18 weeks- In the mornings left side of lower abdomen is noticeably more swollen. Anyone else experience this?

1 answers
The swelling usually goes back to normal after I'm up and moving around about half an hour.This has been going on for about a week or so and just wondered if it was normal, I haven't been able to find anything written about it. Have another Ob appointment on tuesday so will ask then, just was wondering in the meantime.

could it just be that your baby is laying on that side. i started noticing sometimes i felt harder on oneside at certain times in the day and then realized when my baby got bigger that it was actually my baby pushing out on my side curled up and when id hold it close he would try to cuddle with me.
