I am 34 weeks pregnant with my third child. I am wondering if anyone else has ever had a terribly sore abdomen toward the end of pregnancy. I am wondering if this is another of those third child things, like the ligaments being extra sore. Yesterday, I had to pull my maternity panty hose down below my stomach b/c they provided enough pressure that I was in pain. Today, I had to roll the waistband of my maternity pants down for the same reason. When I sit at my desk, I can't put my arm in my lap b/c I can't stand to have it laying across my stomach. It's not terrible shooting pain, but kind of like a super sore muscle that constantly aches. I am going to ask my dr about it at my next appt, but that isn't until next week and I just hate calling and getting half-answers from the nurse. I am not terribly concerned about it, just very uncomfortable.
