I could not walk more that 20 steps today without getting a terrible stitch on my right hand side, hurt everytime I lifted my leg.. Anyone else get this?

Sparklyb2b I used to get this constantly before. If I was walking around town, even just walking around a shopping centre or if I rushed anywhere. Apparently it's all normal. I used to just stop when it happened & do a gentle stretch & just rest for a minute or 2 & then continue.

It's normal, just slow down and rest - don't try to walk through it like I used to do! :o0 used to be told to run through it in PE as a kid, but beign pregnant it's a sign to slow down

Sparklyb2b, I'm so delighted you put this up here. I've been in the same boat for a while now.. as soon as I go for a walk, I get a stitch on either side..one time, I was out walking and my belly really hardened and felt like a tonne in weight..and also had pain..not bad or anything and it went straightaway. Are we supposed to stop walking altogether? What are you doing? I'm peed off though as wanted to continue with my walking routine and I'm finding it hard. Also have pain in the groin area when I get up in the morning ..feels like it's been stretched.. I suppose it is!! Went to Chiro today now so hopefully it will help a bit. Moan Moan Moan!
