    My wife is 24 weeks pregnant and her Uterus is sore

    My wife's uterus is aching and we wanted to know if this is normal. Can anyone help?
    An_217025 responded:
    I feel achy quite a bit, and it is just from everything growing and stretching. As long as her pain doesn't come and go like contractions or her belly is getting rigid with the pain, I would say it is probably normal aches and pains. She can try taking tylenol to see if that helps. It helps me when I get really achy. If it is really worrying her though, she should call her doctor and see what they say.

    I agree with the previous person, i get achy, or feel more tender there often..but I just try to ignore it. Its mostly from round ligament pain and what not. Sometimes my lower abdomen is a little more sensitive than I am used to, but my doctor says thats normal. Good luck, try not to worry to much :)

    Hi Braydon2010,

    I just wanted to say how nice it is to see a husband concerned and looking out for his wife and family! :-D

    As the other ladies described, your wife's body is going through an enormous amount of change and the expanding of the uterus definitely will cause aches and pains.

    Here is a WebMD article on different ways to treat pregnancy discomforts, so you and your wife can work together on finding more comfort as well as being aware of what to expect and be cautious of.


    Congratulations on being a father! I'm sure you will do an amazing job. :)
    Best Wishes! Amelia
