  • Ask your doctor about Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction. I have it and it hurts like hell

  • Your body is going through lots of changes and growing. If you are concerned please talk to your doctor about it and they should be able to help.

  • it could just be round ligament pain i had it bad with my first, anytime i would move it would get worse. but it tends to go away later on after the majority of the stretching is done.
    but check with your doc and make sure its not something bigger.
