  • Thats not a fun feeling. I had that same sharp pain with my little boy. I would always get it while i was standing, usually trying to fix dinner or something. My ob told me it was stretching pains as the ligaments down there were making room. Mine always went away by just sitting down and holding a little pressure on my hip. It did not go away till toward the end of my pregnancy. It will get better!

  • It's ligament stretching pain, they get worse with the more children you have. I'm still getting the extremely painful ones and my due date is in four days. It sucks and nothing works sitting down for me only helps a little.

  • Sounds like ligament pain to me, personally. I had horrible round ligament pain while I was pregnant. Do mention it at your appointment, though. Nothing helped mine, either.
