    i'm just over 17 weeks pregnant and every now and then when i use my stomache muscles like sitting up or stretching or twisting i get such a strong poke or as it feels like my baby is using a stun gun on me it's just like an electric shock ..... is this my baby letting me know its there or something else i can't imagine what it could be though.......


    just wondered only being 17 weeks and a bit :? :? :?

    well it could be, i felt movement from week 16, and it's my first baby. mine felt more like bubbles or flutters to begin with though, progressing into little pokes about 1-2 weeks later and big pokes now (i'm 23+1)

    The pains you describe sound like the pain I had in my ligaments around the same time as you are at.

    I am sure you have got round ligament pain, which is where the uterus is stretching out at suchh a rate that you end up with all sorts of pains as a result.

    Sometimes I got stitch, sometimes it was like being prodded with a stick from the inside, a whole manner of things really.

    Hopefully that will help
