OUCH! Sharp pain for a few days

I'm 28 weeks and for the past few days, I've had this horrible sharp pain in my lower left abdomen. Do you think the baby has just lodged herself into a position that's causing pain in that area?

  • It's "round ligament pain" and can be very severe in first time pregnancies. I had it and doubled over in tears every time I coughed or sneezed. It helps to gently hold your belly if you need to sneeze and makes it not hurt so bad.
