  • I had pains like that with my pregnancies, but you should still call your Doctor. With my 3rd baby, i was 9 months pregnant when we moved and lifted things that i probably should not have, but baby was fine.

  • SOUNDS like round ligament pain - meaning you DID over do it - take it easy and call your DR and you should be fine

  • Around 5 to 6 months is when you will start to stretch. All your muscles in your belly are stretching to make room for the growing baby so it is possible that this is what you are feeling. Also when you are stretching it is much easier to pull a muscle in you abdomon, which can cause pain. If you have bleeding however light call your doctor. But when in doubt call your doc. That is what they are there for. Good luck

  • That doesn't sound ominous to me. I had a lot of round ligament pain with my last 2 pregnancies. It wouldn't be a bad idea to call your doctor
