Hi all, I am 22 weeks pregnant, recently I have started feeling stretching pain on right side of my lower tummy. And discomfort while sleeping. Any suggestions pls share.

As the uterus grows a feeling of stretching is very normal. Use a wedge pillow or rolled bedsheet to support your stomach while sleeping. This will not let the abdomen weight fall too deeply into the bed and the feeling of being stretched will also be less.
