    Is pins and needles up there? I get them usually from having to sleep on my sides all the time so my arms end up getting very sore and resulting in pins and needles in the hands.

    Hi

    What's the itchy rash? I'm almost 37 weeks and am itchy all over especially in bed at night. I haven't spotted a rash yet though.

    Hi - would the itchies be from your skin stretching ?

    If the government wants to prevent teenage pregnancies - just give 15yo that list of symptoms and if that doesn't put them off, nothing will. I've never really thought of all the evil things it does to you towards the end. I'm having a bad enough time at the start of it all.

    I know I lost my mind the first time round, made a coupla mistakes at work they weren't too happy about :-/

    Hey Deb, I get some painful sort of 'pressure' sensations against my right hip and under my right ribs. I don't know if that's anything like you're getting? For me I think it's when Kynan pushes there and tries to stretch out (he's lying on my right, feet on my left, so it's not kicks either).

    Hi Angel and Brooke

    Its reassuring to know that I'm not the only one with a weird side ache.

    Like Kynan, Chico has head down and legs and arms to the left so it isn't a foot or anything. The other thing is I don't get any pain if I'm just sitting still. I can feel him wriggling around in there so it seems unrelated to his movement.
    Maybe like you say Ellen, it is just the fact that my ribs are expanding. I certainly am getting bigger by the day. It is damned uncomfortable though!

    Anyways, i am going to try not worry about it. As it seems everything else is functioning normally. Thanks for your replies.
