Round ligament stretching or other cramping?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok I know I am being a freak and a crazy lady but this ms is making me nervous! My question is- is it normal for me to have round ligament stretching pain at 7w? It may be regular cramping a bit because I am very dehydrated from throwing up so much but I am not sure :/ how do I tell the difference? I am pretty small in stature so I am figuring I will probably have lots of stretching since there's not much room on my body for this little one to go!

In my experience, RLP is a sharp sudden pain that is brought on my something like a sneeze or rolling over too fast, etc. If its lingering I'd call it cramping, which is totally normal at this stage of pregnancy.

I agree with Andi-mama. I have RL pain and it's sharp. Sneezing and moving too quickly are def my biggest triggers.

Ok thank you both! I think it's rlp from moving too fast and along with my slight cramping from trying to rehydrate its making me a bad crazy! I'm going to the doctor on Monday so yay for that smile.gif

I get it the same as andi-mama... but I even get it now and then when I'm not pregnant, if I sneeze hard when I'm lying on my back!

 

At least I can remind myself each time it happens that contractions don't hurt that badly!  (Okay, so they do last longer, and they keep coming back.  But still!)
