  • Glad I could help! Each pregnancy is different, so you might experience things this time that you didn't before.big smile mini

  • OH I remember that feeling and I HATED it!! Just as IhartU says... there is a lot of connective tissue in your abdomen that stretches to accommodate. So, yup, it's normal... just not pleasant. Congrats on expecting #2!! :o)
