I'm 6 months pregnant and my inner thighs are KILLING me. Is that normal? It's the area right up near my "you know what area." :) It hurts when I walk, sit, do anything. I have to lift my right leg with my hand to get it on the couch because it hurts so bad.

  • You have 2 ligaments that attach from your uterus to the inside of your labia majora. Sometimes we feel these ligaments making our labia a little sore during menstruation and that cramping. Their job is to help keep your uterus in place. My guess (and it would only be a guess) is that as your baby is growing and your body, center of gravity, and the way you move is changing, these ligaments are causing your discomfort - or are at the source of your discomfort.
