  • I had pains like that during both my pregnancies. The doctors told me it was the muscles and tendons stretching to make room for the growing uterus. If it continues, I would definitely go to the doctor to ensure everything is ok! Good Luck!

  • I had them about a week or so ago and I was just ask scared. They are like cramps but worse.. well I ready in a book its just ligaments growing.. my sister just calls them Growing pains.. but I would rec getting the book What to expect when your Expecting. It explained it in there and it made me feel so much better to know there was nothing wrong. Read the book it will help and explain a lot!!!

  • Is it an achy pain or does it feel like you would during your period?

  • it doesnt feel achy or like a period. Its quick, sharp stabbing kinds of pains. I havent felt them for couple of hours, so that is a little relieving. They would happen for about 10 sec, go away then come back every few min.
