Is it possibly heartburn or acid reflux? I’ve had issues in the am because laying down (in any position) made it worse and I know pregnancy can also give you awful heartburn issues…. I don’t know if tums is ok for preggos but maybe ask your dr about something like that or a Prilosec daily pill… Also maybe not enough water? I’ve never been pregnant but ive had tons of stomach issues for years :/

I’ve had stomach pain in the morning during pregnancy as well, and while it usually dissipates after I go pee (a full bladder gets really painful for me this time around), it doesn’t always. In the cases where that doesn’t work, it is most often gas. Best way to get rid of it when you can’t lie on your stomach? Squat all the way down and lean forward and stay in that position. Fart. Feel amazing.

Could also be ligament pain from lying on your back at some point during your sleep. During my first pregnancy, I would frequently wake up on my back, and as soon as I rolled over, my belly would scream. This would pass quickly, though — usually just in a few minutes. So if your pain is lasting a while and even making you throw up, then this probably isn’t it.

Honestly, my money is on gas. Pregnancy messes up your whole digestive system, and makes common ailments feel different somehow, because your organs are shifted around. Try starting your morning with a nice squat-n-lean and see if that helps!
