round ligiment pain??

Posted by on Feb. 3, 2013 at 7:47 AM

I have this pain in my lower left side of my belly. I have done some research on line that says it's most likely round ligiment pain. I can't hardly walk at times and I have been in tears from just adjusting my sitting position. This is my second pregnancy but I don't remember having this type of pain with my daughter (6 yrs). I had other issues with her, Preterm labor for example. Should I be concerned or is this natural??

Your baby is probably pushing up against some nerve.  It was the same for me.  With my first just preterm but the pain wasn't nearly as bad.  I had some serious round ligament pain with my son but made it all the way to 38wks.  When is your next check with the doctor?

I go back on the 20th. I also thought about a pinched nerve, I had back problems before I got pregnant anyways. Thank you

 The second baby can create more noticable round ligament pains.  If you are worried about preterm labor though, I would give your care provider a call.

This~ With each pregnancy I get round ligament pain more often and earlier. I am 4 wks 3 days and already have it when getting up to quickly, or rolling over in bed!

Thank you to everyone that has offered advice. I'm feeling better today. I'm going to go get a belly band, my Dr suggested it also. Happy pregnancy. :-)
