Has anyone had round ligament pain? If so, what did it feel like and when did it get better? I’m 17w3d and I’m pretty sure what I have been experiencing for the last couple of days is round ligament pain. On top of my heavy uterus feeling (feels like I’m carrying a brick), I have also had a constant, dull pain on my right side. If I lay down for a while, wake up, and make sudden movements, it’s a shooting pain that will last less than a minute, then go away. Even though the shooting pain goes away, the constant, dull pain happens periodically throughout the day. Is this round ligament pain? When will this get better?

I don’t think it gets better until after delivery. My doctor told me that it will most likely get worse and I will also begin to feel pressure as if the baby will fall out (which she won’t). I’m not bad every day, sometimes are just worse than others.

From experience, that sounds like what you’re experiencing. I’ve been having the same pains on and off and I’m a bit over 19 weeks. Sometimes I’ll feel a shooting pain and sometimes it’s a longer pain, sometimes shorter pain that comes every few minutes or so. I get it mostly on my right side but it’s never been too extreme. Hope you feel better soon!

I figured it would just get more intense as my pregnancy progressed. Sometimes it really hurts and is so uncomfortable. Sitting in an uncomfortable chair in front of a computer doesn’t help either!
