  • It's not your ovaries...its your ligaments stretching. Your doctor will tell you the same thing. No worries.

  • If it's just a quick, sharp pain and not an aching/cramping, I wouldn't worry about it.... I am almost 9 weeks pregnant with my 3rd and 4th babies (twins) and I am already getting pains like that. If I even lift my leg the wrong way in the shower I'll get a sharp pain in my lower stomach. LoL. But it feels more like a muscular pain ... not anything serious. I wouldn't worry about it.
