A little while ago this afternoon I had a really sharp pain hit my in the middle of my abdomen - right where the baby sits. I got it after I had jumped up from my desk quickly to check the printer and sat back down again. It hasn't come back. It was really strong. Can you get ligament stretches in the middle? The baby was moving a bit before this and now I can't feel the baby. Did they move? I have my morphology scan on Friday. Man... I'm so new and unused to these things.. !!!

Could baby have pushed on a nerve as they shifted position? Both of mine used to do some really painful manouvers sometimes which would leave me breathless on occassion.

At 19 weeks movement can still sometimes be not felt if they are positioned in certain way.

Possibly - they have been moving a bit around today - and now. Mum suggested the same thing too. It just surprised me!

If I jump up after sitting I get the sharp pains,  I was told round ligaments...  try and get up gently and more often...
