  • i think so, i know that i felt like that and the dr. said it was ok just a normal pregnancy thing, but if it worries you, go see ur dr asap, it could be nothing or could be something, follow your gut

  • Yes as long as it is not cramping or consistent, like every ___ minutes. I am at 7 months and it is more noticeable, especially if I am trying to bend over too much.

  • thats pretty normal. Could be braxton hicks contractions which are very normal :)
