What is this pain?

I am 29 wks and keep getting a pain down in my area below that feels like there is something twisting and pulling. I am also getting pains in my sides, but I think that is just my belly stretching. Is this normal? This has been happening for the past 2 days or so, on and off. Thanks.

  • It is probably just the baby moving and yoru body stretching! If in doubt ask the doc. Our bodies go through some strange things when we are preggers!! Good Luck!

  • It sounds normal to me. I experienced sudden sharp pains with my pregnancies from about 10 weeks on.

  • Usually doctors define aproblem as a pain anywhere in the body that persist and won't go away. Then it is serious. Your probably just having a stretching inside. no worries. If it continues then get help. My son had appendictis recently and when i realized that no position was comfortable for him, I knew there was a problem. At first I thought it was just bowel troubles, I almost gave him an ex lax. Something told me not to and take him to the hospital. If the pain will not go away, trust your gut. Literally.
