It feels like I'm having round ligament pain already. I don't really remember getting it with my first two pregnancies much at all, and not until much later. For the past week or so, when I stand up, or stretch or roll in bed, there's either a tugging feeling from both sides of my lower abdomen, or a quick sharp pain in one or both sides. Last night it hurt to stand much at all. It's not at all crampy, it definitely feels like stretching.


I'm only 11 weeks though and it seems sort of soon for that. This is my 3rd, and it has been 8 years since my last birth - I don't know if that plays into it?

Anyone else getting RLP early?

I am 8 w 1 day and felt it for sure for the first time last night - a stretching, pulling "pain" on one side when I changed postitionis.  I have felt a kind of tugging a couple of other times but this one was obvious.  This is my 4th - my last one was 7 yrs ago.  I don't remember when it started before.

I think it does come earlier when you have had previous pregnancies. I am fighting the end of a cold and keep feeling it if I cough when also trying to move--OUCH

I am feeling it, too. Especially when my belly goes through a growth spurt.
