  • It is probably round ligament pain. Your body will have to stretch to accomadate your baby. You are probably feeling pain in your lower regions because of the stretching of your hips and uterus. There will be more pains to follow but you will be fine. If you start to see bleeding accompanied with the pain go to the ER or call your OB.

  • It could be your uterus growing, but it's always best to call your doctor. He or she will know better than us, especially if you can go in and get checked out. Good luck!

  • Well, those pains are a part of pregnancy... Everything's moving around to accomadate the baby, I found that a heat pack on the area thats hurting really helps... I'd schedule an appointment with your ob/gyn just to be safe. I was told that unless those pains coincide with bleeding that there's nothing to worry about... I hope this helps and relax. You're a mommy now, everything's going to be great!

  • I had those same pains too.. And they will go away. Its just stuff moving around and shifting out of the way for the baby.
