First time expecting Momma with a question...

I am 21 weeks pregnant. For the last day or so I am having some lowever abdominal pressure and discomfort right where I think my uterus is now. It also is uncomfortable if I bump up against something or put any kind of pressure on it with my hands. Is this just normal growing stuff?

  • some women can't even stand their pants touching thier stomachs or they throw up!!!! I think this sounds normal....your growing and your sensative. I wouldn't hesitate to bring it up to your OB. I wouldn't be concerned unless your in really bad pain.

  • Sounds pretty normal. Just make sure to drink plenty of water because you will feel more pain if you are dehydrated.

  • I think it sounds like round ligament pain, i had that at around 5-6 months I over did it with cleaning one day - just take it easy and relax

  • yep everything is stretching and this is probably what it will feel like most of the rest of your pregnancy.
