    Hi,

    I had cramping for ages- til about 12 weeks, at about 16 weeks (around my period due date) I started getting round ligament pain which was more like shooting pains along the bikini line on either side, at 20 weeks I got longer ligament pain- especially when I've walked for more than 15 mins, it lasts about 30 secs to a minute. I guess stretches and aches are something that my body does around that time- it could be the same for you? I've suffered very bad period pain for years so I think it must be something to do with those muscles. If you're worried don't hesistate to call your midwife- that's what she's there for :)

    Hope it clears up soon

    I quite often getting pains, almost like I've pulled a muscle when I move to quickly but other than that nothing major, if your worried see your midwife, they can check heartbeat etc prob just the baby leaning on things it shouldnt!

    I talked to my obstetrician last week about this and bascially it is ok and to worry if it is accompanied by bleeding. It has gone near enough now, I put it down to it being around the same time as if I had my period. I shouldn't worry because I have had this since right from the beginning of the pregnancy on and off but was hoping it would go along with the sickness which is still hanging on :(

    Thanks for your advice, when I go next week to the obstetrician to book the date of the 20 week scan and bloods I will mention it again and see if there is some pain relief - as tylenol is pretty useless.
