  • Id say your belly is stretching causing your symptoms and perfectly normal. Dont believe me? ASK your obgyn when you see him/her again

  • before you got pregnant the muscles and tendons around your abdomen were very close together as you get further along in your pregnancy the muscles stretch to be as much as 5 inches apart from one another weakning them and making them work harder to get simple tasks done its very normal to experience abdominal fatigue (as i would call it) your body is working in a totally new way
