Pain in lower right abdomen

I will be 20 weeks wednesday... everytime i stand up for a long period of time (well normal period, but long for being pregnant,lol) or even when im out shopping and walking around, i get a nagging pain in my lower right abdomen, its like right where your panty line would start. its been going on for about 2 or 3 weeks now, but im just now realizing that it is caused by standing, or walking forever. anyone know what this may be?? it kinda burns, and is sometimes sharp! its soo uncomfortable, i have to constantly keep my hand on it w/ pressure to ease the pain when im walking!

  • it is ligaments, muscles, and skin stretching to accommodate your growing baby and belly..unfortunately you may feel this for about 5-10 weeks maybe the rest of your pregnancy. the only advice i can give is to massage your belly with baby oil or cocoa butter. it helps with stretch marks and can put a little more elasticity in your skin.

  • Probably ligament pain as stated above. If it gets to the point where you cannot walk and hurts so bad call your dr. Actually feel free to call your doctor anytime to make sure it is not something more serious :)
