    SIDE CRAMPS

    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?

    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!!

    Gosh I am so glad I came across this post. I have been dealing with this pain the past 2 days & been wondering what in the world it was. Glad I'm not the only one 'suffering' from it! :pbpt:
