<p>I have started to have belly aches at night, especially when I am turning from side to side. Almost like a cramp in my belly. Definitely frustrating when I am trying to sleep soundly! Anyone else feel achey at night?</p>

<p>My belly will feel achy at any random point though-out the day.  Often if I stand up quickly or roll over fast I get a sharp (round ligament type) pain that lasts for a minute or two.  Aches and pains are really normal and just a part of pregnancy.  Blah.</p>

<p>I've been experiencing this too from time to time, usually if I get up or turn too quickly.  We have another two sets of ligaments besides the round ligament in the front: the broad ligament and the sacro-uterine ligament -> <a href="http://www.childbirthconnection.org/images/40-weeks-pregnant-external.gif" target="_blank">diagram</a></p>
<p>They say the strain of the broad ligament increases in the 6th month but usually disappears in the 7th month.</p>
<p>Maybe that's it?</p>

<p>When I have had it, it feels like something is pulling or stretching from the inside. I found that taking a warm bath helped when it acted up.</p>
