  • Yes. It's probably the ligaments in your belly stretching to make room for your growing uterus.

  • yes. I am 13 weeks 3 days as of today, and I have them to. If it gets very severe, talk to your dr. but a little pain is normal.

  • I agree-- most likely ligament pain. A little scary with your first pregnancy, but perfectly normal!

  • I am 26 weeks and I have had them a couple days a week for the last few months. For some reason mine seem to get gradually more painful but they go away within a 30 minute to an hour once they begin.
