Some days (like today) I have this constant achy uterus feeling - not unlike when I have my period. It's not BHs, I do get those & they're fairly uncomfortable, but this is more of a constant dull ache. It's not ligament pains either - at least not the sharp sudden ones I used to get very early on.

Anyone else have this? (I'm almost 17 weeks.)

Yeah, I do.. I had it my last two pregnancies. Not sure what it is exactly but it's definitely uncomfortable. I attribute it to rapid growth and stretching so not unlike RLP.

Nic, loving mama to 5 with a SURPRISE 6th on the way.

I've been a little more achy and having lots more tightening/BH. I don't remember being so aware of my uterus during my other pregnancies, if that makes sense.

I'm 19 weeks, and the last few weeks I've been very aware of my uterus. This is my third pregnancy, and I don't remember feeling this before. It's like, sometimes it's just so obvious that it's there and bigger than normal and stretching or something. And after sex, the contractions are actually really uncomfortable. I don't remember that from the other 2 times, either. It's just a constant awareness of my uterus, lots of pressure and achi-ness. I don't like it at all! I think I've still got far too long to go to already be achy and uncomfortable!

I get this... it's something akin to very bloating period cramps... it's just gets so heavy and sore feeling all across my abdomen/uterus. Sometimes it seems like the little one is pushing against the wall with all of it's force or something. I remember feeling this some in the last pregnancy too, though I don't think it came until later. I definitely feel more sore down there this time.

I've been having this a lot this time. I had to stop wearing the under-the-belly maternity pants ridculously early and go to the full belly panel. The other ones fit, but they made the aches much worse. Kind of silly to have the huge belly panel over my small bump, but whatever it takes to be comfortable, right?

I have days like that, and for me at least, I find it is usually an indicator that I have not been drinking enough water. Usually a couple glasses of water and laying down for a while will help. Just an idea. Of course other days I think it might be from doing too much. Who knows.

I get that too! Baby goes through a big growth spurt around 19-20 weeks, so I imagine that's why!
