The last few days I have been in a bit of pain and had no idea what was going on. It felt like stretching pains so I just assumed that it was the ligament pain that people speak of, even though I had no idea whether it was or not! I wasn't worried though because I knew it wasn't a cramping type pain, more a burning type stretching pain that comes and goes. Anyway, Wednesday I had it really bad so did some research on Dr Google and came to the conclusion it was definately round ligament pain - it was on the right hand side which is the usual complaint too, so I put my mind at ease and tried to ignore it. Well, that night I went home and when I went to get ready for bed was astounded to discover that my bump had popped something shocking! I went into the lounge and said to the HG 'Um, has my bump got bigger or am I imagining things?' and his eyes nearly popped out of his head! How you can go from one size one morning and a completely different size that night is beyond me! I now seriously (seriously!) need to start shopping for maternity clothes but with the change of season approaching and the knowledge of how cold I get at the slightest breath of southerly wind, I might try and get by for another few weeks and then start winter wardrobe shopping. I just hope the pain will stop soon because those ligament pains are really sore! No stretch marks yet though! Woot!

Still waiting to feel some movement too, come on bubba!



    I think you need this little t-shirt!

  2. Pregnancy is absolutely amazing. You think you know your body then you are preg and you cannot control a thing! I don't remember ligament pain, only back pain later on. If you think that hurts wait till it's time for bub to come out! He he he

  3. Oh yes the stretching pains!!! Bub must have got in a new position that required more room! I can remember the same happening, being in pain and uncomfortable for a day or 2 and all of a sudden POP!!
    Can't wait for another belly shot!

  4. Oooh yes, i remember those "ouch" moments very well. Weekly in fact and when I was walking and needed to sit down. There were plenty of moments where strangers would rush up to me thinking I was in labour. Not to freak you out - I'm just a sook!
    Have a moment to yourself, lay down on the lounge, have no sound around. Drink a full icey water or juice - maybe you will feel the flutterings then. I started to feel mine around 16w and it was awesome!

  5. A few months ago on ICLW you wrote me a question on a post of mine. I have FINALLY gotten around to answer it.

    Hope you feel better soon and congratulations on your pregnancy!
