pulling pain in uterus?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
anyone experienced intense waves of pain that feel like your uterus is being PULLED on, or pulled apart, that shoots downward almost to your vagina??

I had about 6-8 of these pains in a row today over the course of an hour. the -3 in the middle were so excruciating they made me cry involuntarily in public. scary -- seemed like something horrible was happening, but then it subsided totally and no more pain at all.

I've had some light braxton hicks, and this was definitely not that!

If it were me, I'd call my midwife. I hope it's nothing!

It's very likely your ligaments stretching. That can be excruciating. I'm sorry you're in pain. I'd get it checked out though just in case.

Round Ligament pain. Yes, it's excruciating. I get it when I move too fast or move in a way that stretches the ligaments. It's usually followed by cuss words. lol. Sometimes when I try to roll over in bed I get them. Freakin A! lol. Yeah, no fun.

Yup, sounds like round ligament pain. I wouldn't worry too much unless it gets really severe or carries on for more than a day or if you have any other weird symptoms.

I get them - and it freaks Big Daddy out because I just freeze with this look of pain on my face and I can't talk until it passes.

Fun times

I'd guess round ligament, too.

for me it always ends up being round ligament combined with gassy pain. It seems to pull my stomach when I am having gas craps, but they are so bad I have to double over and breath through them.
I woudn't worry unless you feel your uterus harden into a tight ball while it is happening.

yah sounds like good old round lig. pain
If its your first preg it can be worse...but this is my 3rd time getting to 20+ weeks and it still hurts me so bad I am hunched over sometimes
of course get it checked out to ease your worries!
