    Interesting that it's common second time around, I would have thought it would be more so first time with that first initial stretch! But doesn't appear so..

    Yes extra monitoring and thorough scanning at each OB appt, ramping up even more so when I reach viability.

    Thanks for all the replies

    If it's excruciating again I may still go down to the hosp just so they can confirm there's no tightening along with it.. but seems round ligament pain can be very severe.. bugger to both!!

    That's what I thought too! I thought second time would be easier but I was so wrong. I think it's because everything stretched the fist time so there isn't the same support if that makes sense. Also probably doesn't help that second babies are often bigger - DS is a full kilo heavier than DD was!

    Glad you're getting the monitoring, definitely go to the hospital for a check if the pain is concerning you, much better than staying home and worrying. Fingers crossed this pregnancy is smooth sailing.
