  • I had it too and it was just the baby growing ... so they were stretching pains it freaked me out to..but you should always ask your dr if it is heartburt they have some great stuff you can take better then anything you can buy called asfex ask for samples it's crazy expensive..hope it gets better :)

  • There's lots of fun lol things coming your way... Round ligaments stretching, skin stretching and stretchmarks, (lots of cocoa butter), heartburn as mentioned, nausea is a possibility, lower abdomen cramps, lower back pain, swelling feet ankles and knees, your hips spreading, lossing hair, the list goes on and on and on...BUT remember no two pregnancies are alike. You may have all, none or some of the symptoms the pregnant woman next door to you is having. If you are concerned or worried or frightened baout any if the symptoms you experience CALL YOUR DOCTOR!

  • Braxton hix.
    Your body is practicing for actual contractions.
    It happens at 20 weeks usually but i got it at 17.
