  • Could be your gallbladder, in fact, I'm about 99% sure that's what it would be. Talk to your doc. How far along are you? Gallbladder attacks are very common in pregnant women and especially occur after meals. High-fat meals tend to cause the attacks worse. Any other symptoms? Is is episodic (like with meals and goes away) or constant? How long has it been going on?

  • It could be your ligaments stretching. If you haven't put on much weight it could from the baby starting to move down and pulling.

  • its probably the position the baby is in -

  • Most likely the baby's position with you so far along and since it doesn't seem to be associated with meals.
