SIDE CRAMPS

joskam1007 posted:
I'm currently 29 weeks pregnant and every now and then I get a cramp in my side that feels like I pulled a muscle. It's only ever on the right side and takes a while to go away. Does anyone else get this? It feels like when you drink too much water and go running and you get a cramp in the side.... ??????????? Any thoughts?

I get those too....just uterus and ligaments stretching to accomodate a very fast growing baby. babies will grow at a record pace in the 3rd tri... it is very annoying, I know. but, if it gets to where you can't stand it or time-able, then call the Dr...

sounds like the same pain I get when I turn over to fast or don't help the baby belly turn in bed! Brings tears to my eyes! RLP pain all the way, I actually saw an anatomical chart in the OB's office the other day at my apt. Theirs a ligament that runs from the top portion of your uterus down your side at an angle to the inside of your pelvic/top hip area. That's the little bugger that's getting me!!
