Describe your ligament pain
27-07-2014 21:33 #2
Like a pulling pain, kind of like a tightness. I felt it mostly in my pelvis.
I had to be careful getting up too quickly as that would trigger a shooting pain. It often felt like my whole pelvic & hip areas were all jammed up if I spent too long sitting.
It's hard to explain but my OB pressed on a few points around my belly to show me where it was coming from.
DS is only 2 days old so I still have some pain.
Does that make sense? Sorry, a bit sleep deprived and scattered at the moment!

Oh and it was pretty much constant, but would ease when lying down or with gentle movement

Bump, anyone else?
[The reason I'm interested is that I've been having period-like pains for about 1.5-2 hours at a time which needs panadol and a heat pack to resolve, I saw my OB after the first time this happened and everything looked fine and he suggested round ligament pain because of the gestation (17 weeks), but I'm a little unconvinced, and possibly just paranoid due to previous history (placental abruption at 25 weeks)]

Totally understandable to be worried in your case. That's around the time it started for me too I think, I went in to see my OB as I was worried about the pelvic pain, all was good. It can feel like period pain and is really common in second pregnancies from what I understand. Are you on extra monitoring for this pregnancy?

It's like a stitch but more severe and painful on the sides going down to the pelvis. When I asked about this at my antenatal appointment the midwife showed me a model of a pregnant women's belly and described what happens with the uterus and how it looks. Was very interesting and I totally understand the pain now.

My round ligament pain was always on my right lower side and like a really bad stitch (it would often stop me in my tracks) - it was always brought on by my brisk morning walk and started from around the 16 week mark with both pregs. It generally settled down once I'd stopped moving for 10/15 mins.

Mine were also like a stitch, started way earlier for me than what they say. They were worse when getting up or twisting too suddenly, coughing, sneezing (especially when laying down), rolling over in bed, pretty much anything! If it was sudden, it hurt. The pain was up the sides from almost the groin or hip up my stomach, sharp stabby type pain I guess that traveled up the sides. They would last maybe 10-20 seconds but it was really painful! I still get some occasionally (I am now 30 weeks).
