  • Could be a few things. You should call your OB and talk to either a nurse or the doctor.

    Many times, when your uterus is expanding the ligaments have to stretch, so that can cause some cramping. There are more serious issues that can cause cramping as well. This is why it is best for you to call a medical professional (preferably one that has your medical history as well as knows your current medical / health condition). They can advise you from there.

  • Call your doctor, or at least a nurse in the practice. Better safe than sorry.

  • Not sure what prenant is but if your 22 weeks pregnant more than likely it's round ligament pain

  • Always best to call your health care provider on these types of issue. Could be ligament stretching, baby moving about, or something more serious. Betting on ligament stretching. To be sure put in a quick call.
