Is anyone else experiencing this? My tummy seems to ache all the time. It is mainly the sides of my tum and sometimes down into my groin. Is this normal or should I be worried? I am sure it is just my body adjusting as the baby grows but it is a bit tiring to say the least.<br><br>
I'm only 18 weeks but I feel really pregnant!<br><br>
TIA.

I'm 18 weeks today and I felt aches in the sides of my uterus yesterday. I felt nervous for a second, but I definitely was not having BH, so I just attributed them to stretching ligaments. I'd probably mention it if they get more intense or are truly constant, but my guess is that it's just stretching.

Mine come in spurts. And then after they're done, I am noticeably bigger. This week has been one of those weeks where I've had a lot of achiness. Accompanying it is a lot of fatigue and grumpiness. Funny how the baby grows in spurts like that and how our hormones and everything else respond!

I had that feeling right before I really popped a couple of weeks ago now that I think about it. It isn't a nice feeling but it's normal.

I am having that this week, and I think it is because I am getting notcibly bigger. I chalk mine up to round ligament pain. But for me, it is not terribly painful, just an occasional achey feeling.

I saw my chiro today and she thinks it is ligaments stretching. I feel a lot better after getting adjusted. I am really popping out now, I think I look super preggers! You would think I would remember this from the first time but it's like I have amnesia!<br><br>
Thanks mamas!

This is me exactly! I don't remember being quite so sore before, although I'm sure that I was. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">
