any1 feel this at 20 weeks?

I was having these pains all around my stomach... like the "sharp" pain you get when you feel like you have to use the bathroom(number two) but it was off and on for 5 hours and I never had to actually use the bathroom... I was thinking it was caused by gas or something... but I was wondering if any one else had this pain and if it is normal or not especially that it was going on for 5 hours.

  • i had sharp pains around my stomach but they were round ligament pains. that happens when the belly starts to grow and the ligaments start to stretch. But it never felt like i had to go number two.

  • it's too early for braxton hicks if you're only twenty weeks, at least that's what my doctor told me. but i did have those pains and my doctor also told me it was ligament pain. I've had lots of them in different areas.

  • I am 20 weeks now and get occasional sharp pains, But I know that its from streching of the ligaments and the baby shifting around too.
