  • That is very normal, and let's you know everything is fine. It's your ligaments. They are stretching to make your body able to carry the growing the baby. It hurts like hell, but it doesn't hurt all the time.

  • yes i do every single morning, day and night. No matter how i sit, lay or stand. if i cough it hurts and pulls. its normal, its part of your growing belly

  • I have some bad pain down there as well that is exactly like that. My dr said it was normal. I am 34 weeks along and it has gotten a little worse. but you'll adapt to the pain.
