  • Sounds like ligament stretching pain... that usually happens around the sides and bottom of your belly... mine got worse the bigger he got. ask the doc if it's too uncomfortable

  • It sounds normal, your body is changing and things are shifting, I wouldn't worry about it. And congrats!

  • If you are really concerned about it call your doc just for peace of mind. I never had that happen.

  • I am pregnant with my 3rd, and I am willing to bet that it is your muscles. I have found that the more fit you are before pregnancy, the more muscle there is to tear to shreds while you're pregnant! And you really made me LOL! You said you feel like something is pushing on you when you lean a certain way...duh! You're pregnant! There is always someone locked in there!
