Sneezing and pain?

I'm 16 weeks pregnant and I just sneezed really hard. It hurt SO bad. And not in my sinus area, but in my pelvic region. Like sharp pain that lasted for five or so seconds after the sneeze. It happened on both sides, right by my hips, down to the lower pelvic bones. Is this from round ligaments going whacky, or what?

  • As your belly grows and all of your muscles begin to stretch this problem with worsen, but it's all normal. Just day you'll sneeze and pee a bit....sorry to say it, but just like our mom's said....this will all happen!
    Oh the joys of pregnancy!

  • That's normal. I am 25 weeks w/ twins and I am to the point where every time I cough or sneeze too hard, I can hear and feel my pelvic bones pop. LoL
