@kiwichick15:  I’m 16 w 2 days and I am definitely having some pulling/cramping pains on my left side.  I thinking it’s round ligament pain.  I go for an OB appt on weds so I’ll ask what he thinks then.  But I bet it’s completely normal!

@kiwichick15:  16w 5d over here and everything about my tummy hurts 🙁 mostly just above my pelvis. I get aches, sudden pains and cramps. I am pretty sure it’ s all normal and I am not too worried. Hard not to worry about everything though 🙁

I’m 20 weeks and I have some cramping or random very sharp pains (probably round ligament pain) that happen every so often.  Sometimes even some general achiness.  As long as it comes and goes and is not severe you are fine.  Just bring it up on your next visit.

If it’s something that is persistent and severe, or accompanied by bleeding, or with fever you should seek help immediatey.

Low in the cradle of your pelvis? I had SUPER bad round ligament pain.

I had the same thing happen to me early on – it was part of the reason I knew I was pregnant. I remember feeling super paranoid about miscarriage early on as well but if there’s no blood (spotting is also normal), don’t worry!

@kiwichick15:  All of the pregnancy cramps can be super worrisome but you are not alone mama! As the baby & our uteruses grow there will be lots of twindges and cramps. My *favorite*(sarcastic) pain is the one that stretches from my belly button to my vagina (round ligament pain). I’m 23w and stretching!

I have been cramping since day 1! All day, everyday and I’m almost 20 weeks.  It’s normal!

Yep, completely normal. In fact, the night before my belly ‘popped’ I had horrible pulling and cramping, I couldn’t even stand up straight. Turns out, it was just my ligaments lengthening and uterus growing. Next morning I woke up with an unmistakeable bump. 🙂 That was at 20 weeks, so right around where you are.

It’s normal. I had them off and on throughout my pregnancy.

@kiwichick15:  Very normal. I actually had no pain and then at around 12-17 weeks I had super bad round ligament pain, which they say may start up again. I actually had such a bad pinch in my pubic region I thought I was going to die, but it was all normal.

Interesting because maybe TMI but my crotch area is totally sore today. First time I’ve had any type of “pain” so far and I can only assume it’s RLP!
