  • I have a pulled muscle in my left side, and it had been driving me nuts! I am 17 weeks, and it happened about 5 weeks ago from when I had bronchitis. Warm baths, gentle massage, alternating warm moist heat, and ice. My doctor said that because my belly is stretching, it will be more difficult to heal. Good luck, I feel your pain!
