  • Round ligament pain. Basically your muscles are stretching to prepare for labor.

  • I had that with my first pregnancy. Majority of the time it was my son punching me or his head pressing down. As your baby drops and gets into position for delivery you get all sorts of wonderful (read: horrible) sensations. They can change position a lot in the last few weeks and with limited room they push on your birth canal a lot.

  • Thats nothing! try touching your pubic bone . Take your finger and just push lightly you dont notice this until you do that. Tell me how that feels???

  • holy cow anon! you aren't kidding! that freaking hurts. lol, i never noticed that. it probably is round ligament pain but my doc also told me that it could be dialations pain. pretty much everything down there is stretching and widening and getting ready for a baby to pass through. baths might help with the pain.

  • It felt normal until i stopped then it felt like there was alot of pressure. i have a pain in my lower right abdomen about every twenty minutes then my back feels like my hips are squeezing into my spine :)
