Hi gals, I am 12w3d and almost every time I sneeze it feels like my lower abdominal muscles are being yanked. Anyone else feel this sharp pulling when they sneeze and know why it feels so sharp?

I am 14 weeks now, and towards the end of my first trimester, it did and still does hurt my low abdominal muscles when I sneeze. I'm glad to know that it's not uncommon. Thanks.

I am 33 weeks and i think it hurt from day one when i sneezed. it feels like my stomach is ready to split when i sneeze.

I get it too. I think they are your round ligaments that hold your uterus. Ive read something on this before...cant remember exactly tho!!

I get this too and have done since a few weeks into pregancy. I find it helps if you bed forward from the waist and bend your knees before you sneeze. Not sure why this helps, but it stops the pain.

Yes, absolutely! I,m 11 weeks along and anytime I sneeze it feels like something ruptured.. It seems to help if I feel the sneeze coming on in advance and am able to tighten my abs or hold the area firmly with both hands. I'm told this is completely normal though!

Everytime I sneeze, I urinate a little bit and yes the baby jumps! LOL

i know this post is old, but i really was scared there was something wrong with me because when i sneeze i feel like i've just done a hundred situps lol. the fetal position really does help. but lately it's like i can't just sneeze once anymore. i have to sneeze like 4 times in a row. oww!
