I've had a sort of generalized tender/sore abdomen for a few days. I am 16 weeks. Hoping it is just everything stretching. Normal? I can't remember ..

I guess so... How sore is it? Mine feels tender when the doctor pokes it feeling for my uterus. Maybe check with your GP. I've had a whole lot of weird pains and things going on my GP must be getting sick of me! And it's annoying coz my Mum can't remember anything with hers and I don't exactly want to ask whether copious amounts of discharge is normal amongst my mum friends!! Haha.

Was everything ok at the 12 weeks scan?

I had and still have all sorts of pains and aches! to me that is normal and expected. If you are worried though it doesnt hurt to be checked out. My rule of thumb is to have a rest for a bit and see if I feel better. If i dont feel better after a few hours i would check it out. So far for me nothing hurts consistently for that long.

Thanks, it comes and goes. This morning my belly is fine but I had a bit of wind pain and pellet poo.

Yes I know this is TMI but it might help somebody else  biggrin.gif

You might be constipated. Drink more water and increase your fresh fruit intake (you can also have prune or pear juice) and see how you go.
