One of the more unpleasant pregnancy symptoms that I have experienced intermittently throughout my pregnancy is abdominal pain when I sneeze.
It happens mostly when I sneeze while lying flat or standing up straight. It feels like my abdominal muscles are literally tearing. I expect that this is normal given that these muscles are likely getting pretty stretched already. If I bend at the waist while sneezing it doesn't hurt so much.
This morning, while still lying in bed playing on my iPhone, I sneezed, which caused excruciating pain. A few minutes later, I felt another sneeze coming on. Being smarter than the first time, I lifted my knees to make sure I was more "bent" at the waist. This definitely worked, but I didn't have time to cover my mouth, and I ended up sneezing all over my iPhone. I muttered some choice words, and Ryan came to see what was going on, only to find my iPhone dripping with saliva. I wish I would have taken a picture of it.
Have any of you experienced painful sneezes during pregnancy?
