    Well I'm not sure if you have the same as me, but I have started to get a little bit of pain in my pelvis and have started worrying that I might get that really painful pelvis thing. Can't remember what its called now.

    It came on after doing breast stroke the other night. And I though swimming was the best! :twisted:

    It might be round ligament pain as your ligaments stretch... if you put the term into google there are some useful descriptions of the kind of pain that causes. I had lots of shooting/stabbing pains either side of the bump- along the bikini line at about 16-17 weeks but they only lasted a few seconds at a time. This week I've had longer pain- sometimes a minute or two when I have been walking for more than about 15 mins. I walk to work every morning, a 45 min walk, and some mornings it's been quite hard to keep moving. The pain feels like a tightening, muscular pain but it soon goes and it happens at exactly the same point in my journey. It's slackened off today so I hope it's passed!

    If you're worried I'd talk to your midwife about it :)

    It sounds like I have most likely got the round ligament pain. In the past two days my bump has definitely got bigger and firmer and the pain does feel like it is from the stretching.

    I thought it might be my pelvis cracking up and I was really worried!

    I will probably have a better weekend now, thank you Rosebay!!!!!!!

    :)

    There's a really good description of it here:-

    http://www.babycenter.com/refcap/pregna ... h/205.html

    and it tells you when to get advice too. I definitely got it after a bit of a growth spurt too- apparently it's a real second trimester thing and gets better later on.

    Oooooh I've been having exactly that! It's been really uncomfortable if I walking for a while. I didn't think it was normal, but it obviously is.

    See what would I do without these boards? :D
