  • Its not really painful. It just feels like I slept on it all night. The pain doesn't last long and that's the only time I feel anything or any pain

  • Be glad the pain doesn't last long. With my first my growing uterus was stretching my abdominals from the inside out. It felt like I had been doing too many sit-ups for 2-3 weeks. Then it went away. But it was pretty much an all day sore muscle thing!
