  • To me it feels like when you are running and you get that pain in your side - only it's in the lower part of my belly. When I was around 16 weeks the midwife asked if I was feeling the baby move and I described those pains to her and she said no, that's your ligaments stretching.

  • What exactly are you feeling? Is it like pressure in your lower abdomen or slight pain (like cramping?)

  • deffinately uncomfy! but I only experienced pain when I moved wrong...sometimes I felt crampy which is ok unless you start spotting or bleeding, but when I got up wrong or rolled over wrong it hurt! After a while you'll start to kinda get used to it! Pregnancy sucks sometimes but it's all worth it in the end!

  • sometimes when i move wrong or turn i really feel it and sometimes it feels crampy like the week before you start your period. I have absolutely no bleeding or spotting or any kind of discharge

  • To me its not comfortable! I'm 16 weeks and it feels like pain or cramps but before like when I was 8-10 weeks i had spotting that really scared me i thought i had a miscarriage the doctor told me it was old blood! But I'm starting to get used to it because weird things happen when you become pregnant. CONGRATS!!
