Cramp on my lower left side

I am 19 weeks pregnant and have started to feel my little bundle of joy moving A LOT. Especially in the last 3 days. However, I have an odd sharp cramp on my lower left side of my stomach. It's more towards my hip. Is it growing pains bc the muscles down in that area are growing. I have read that in the next 3 weeks I will be growing quite a bit. I am not stressed or extremely worried I am just kind of curious about what it could be.

  • I dunno I have that pain a lot I have no clue what it is I keep getting checked they say things are fine ... maybe it is just the uterus expanding but at least you know someone else is having it?

  • It can be the ligaments stretching. They refer to that as round ligament pain. Or it can be your muscles. Sounds to me like ligaments stretching though. Congrats on your pregnancy :) I am 23 weeks pregnant with my 5th :)
