  • well what your feeling above your pubic bone is just your utuerus its growing and it gets tight soon as you know your whole belly will feel hard. as for the pain you probaly just moved wrong which caused a sharp pain in your ligments wouldnt worry does suck but happens. i get them to if i move to quickly

  • yeah there is nothing to worry about. the hard belly part is normal :)))

    and the pain, yup that hurts really bad. I had that very often when i was pregnant. it mostly happened when i moved wrong or when i stood up on my feet too fast. or even when i was stretching a little after waking up.. sometimes it was really hurtful. but my obgyn told me that this is normal and not dangerous at all :)

    DON'T WORRY SO MUCH... ALSO YOU DO KNOW THAT WITH EVERY PREGNANCY THERE ARE GOING TO BE DIFFERENCES. AND ALSO WITH EVERY ADDITIONAL PREGNANCY YOUR LIGAMENTS AND MUSCLES GET LESS AND LESS TIGHT. SO THEY ARE WEAKER AND CAN HOLD THE BABY SAFE AND SECURE AND IN UPRIGHT LOCKED POSITION LESS AND LESS.
