    Hi ladies,
    This past week i have been getting really sharp pains in my stomach, they dont last long but happen quite often and they are very painful. Ive had no bleeding or anything and ive still got my preg symptoms, sore bbs, tiredness ect. I was just wondering if this is normal and if i could have misscarried? if i had miscarried though wouldnt there be bleeding aswell :? . sorry for going on, im just a bit of a worrier lol.

    Hi Rachel,

    How's the cold? I'm waiting to get one, always do around this time of the year, then I get another in Jan/Feb. very strange!!

    Don't worry about the pains, it's perfectly normal, its all the ligaments & everything stretching and growing to accomodate your bubba. For the last couple of days i've been getting alot of sharp pains and period type cramps, apparantly this is also due to the baby moving on up, wish she'd do it more gently!! (keep calling baby a she - must stop doing that!)

    Nicki.x :D

    Hi

    Don't worry girls this sounds like round ligament pains. I still get them every few weeks and it's a sign of your uterus growing. It's worst if you stand up suddenly or move suddenly and is very very sharp.

    Think of it as a very good sign!!! :D

    Maybe your uterus is more sensitive this time? I'm thinking that because of women feeling their babies move earlier with their second/tihrd child.

    I used to have those pains very frequently - they are a bit like stubbing your toe (arghghghghgh) its the sort of pain that doesnt hit you for a second and then you are going "ooooh" and pulling a funny face!!!!
