  • As long as it's not accompanied by bleeding, yes. It's round ligament stretching.

  • I had the same feeling up until about 10-12 weeks so I believe it is normal, but I would call your doctor if you're worried.

  • Yepp totally normal. But if it gets unbearable or is accompanied by bleeding go to the e.r or call your doctor immediately.
    Also if you are concerned you can always call your doctor. Congrats on the new addition!

  • It's growing pains I had them too really freaked me out but unless your bleeding I wouldn't be all that concerned but if you are call your doctor rest assured they will help you and let you know if it's something to be worried about but it's probably just growing pains.
