24 weeks pregnant...very sore abdomen?

I am 24 weeks and 3 days pregnant. Last night when I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom I noticed that my abdomen from my belly button down was extremely sore. The pain reminds me of pain you would get from working out, doing sit-ups or stomach crunches but I haven't done anything like that. My abdomen is sensitive to touch too and when I get up to move around I can barely stand up straight. I don't know if this is just my uterus stretching or something more serious and if the pain doesn't ease up soon I will be calling my doctor. I was just curious if anyone else has experienced anything like this.

  • I'm 25 weeks pregnant and experience it off and on. My doctor said it's normal as long as it's bearable and there's no bleeding or other complications. It's just everything stretching...you'll also get really crampy & it kind of feels the same if you're dehydrated

  • It could be many different things, so i'd play it on the safe side and call your Dr. it could just be things stretching out, but who knows... hope you get feeling better

  • Thank you ladies. My doctor said that she believes it is just round ligament pain and that if anything changes or there is any complications they will bring me in. I just wanted to thank all of you for your responses.
