Find out what's causing your pregnancy pain

Your body goes through amazing physical changes when pregnant, not least of which are the flood of pregnancy hormones prompting these physical changes and the growth of your womb to accommodate your growing baby. It's not surprising then that physical discomforts during pregnancy are common, and while some women may sail through pregnancy with little more discomfort than occasional wind, others may find that they have to deal with a whole gamut of annoyances.

Here we deal with the more common pregnancy complaints and look at how discomforts may be eased.

Hi,

 I am 26 weeks pregnant and for the past few weeks I have been having really bad pains in my stomach around my belly button area.  I have been in and out of hospital because of it but they have no idea whats causing it....does anyone else seem to be gettin these pains?  Its really beginning to get me down and scare me that something might b wrong with the baby.
