Hi all...im a newbie here....trying to figure my way around here.....previously posted this in  Pregnancy: Tips, Questions and Information...18 weeks pregnant now...just wondering if anyone else is also going through this....

I've been having round ligament pains in my lower abdomen towards the right side, since past 5-6 days now and they get really really severe at times  sad.gif  it started as stitch pains initially but went on to become spasms... its like gripping/twisting bouts of pain one after the other without giving the previous one time to relax fully  cry1.gif  ...the pains have now left me so sore that any small movement is a pain..

Went to see my GP the 2nd day after a terrible night and she said its normal and just to take rest..which is what i was told when i called the hospital..

They ease out a bit but always come back late afternoon and are quite intense, even though im taking complete rest.....has anyone else been experiencing these same pains and for such a long time???

Please help!!

I get serious ligament pain on both sides of my lower abdomen. Like sharp stabby pains. I got them last pregnancy too. Mine mostly start if I roll over in bed too quickly, but they can last for ages. I am 17 weeks pregnant, so a similar gestation.

I find sleeping as much onto my stomach as I can helps.

Thanks EDZ, that helps  original.gif  I try and sleep on my left side mostly now...but the pains come & go throughout the day...have US scheduled for the 16th so guess will just have to wait and hope the pain subsides by then..

I've been having these too. They come and hang around for a day or two, then go away. Then they come back a few days later.

I mentioned them to my OB and he said they are completely normal and they should ease about 20 weeks.  I'm hanging out for the 20 weeks!

I've been having the same thing all week.  It seems worse when I stretch out (such as lying in bed), so I try to keep my legs a bit bent.  My sleep has been terrible, so I am tired as well as sore.  sad.gif

I get get very intense pain sometimes when I sneeze - usually when I am in bed.  It last about 30 seconds or so but really hurts.  According to Dr Google its ligament pain, not sure.

Putting my hand up for this one too, and today my GP was giving me a check over and poked a little into those two areas running along down the sides and they were very tender. She said it is normal and there isn't much you can do to stop it happening its just the muscles growing and changing to get ready to carry the extra weight of your belly.

I had a attack when I got out of the car to fast at the service station on the weekend, funny how any sense of self consciousness has gone out the window now I have the belly... I doubled over and yelled OUCH! while grabbing my areas in front of a bunch of tradesmen... oh well!
