  • I agree. Call the ob/gyn!!! It could be just stretching ligaments, but I wouldn't risk it.

  • Uterine ligament stretching. Look up the anatomy of the uterus and you can tell. I wouldn't worry too much. I had really bad pains w/ my 1st and I thought it could be something really serious and it was only stretching. Try warm compresses and switching positions often.
