  • Yes...its called round ligament pain. Its your uterus stretching.

  • It is normal, painful, and gets worse. Round ligament pain is your uterus stretching and it does hurt like a stabbing pain. Sometimes changing positions helps. It helps me to sorta slowly walk mine out, and if it is really bad and consistant I find that soaking in a nice hotwarm bath helps as well.

  • I drink a lot of water when I get them... dehydration makes it worse.
