I'm 17 weeks 2 days. The other night I woke up and felt this really sharpish kind of pain in my right side - it kind of felt like lightning if that makes sense. It only lasted a few seconds but was the worst type of cramping I've felt since pregnancy. Then, just a moment ago I felt it again but this time it was more on my left side/towards the middle and didn't last as long. Does anyone have any idea what this is???

It sounds like it could be round ligament pain, caused by the ligaments stretching to accommodate your growing uterus. Does it kind of feel like when you have a charlie horse in your leg, but only a few seconds?

OMG, I've been having the same thing. It is mainly on my right side by my ovary. I don't have any real clue as to what it is either. Thanks for asking that question. I was kinda curious myself.

Hey lala! How you going :) Im now 19wks 4 days and I can tell you, i have had exactly what you had , especially around 2 weeks ago...I still get little tweaks of pain here and there, but not as often as i was....but am not worried as I had my u/s last friday (its a boy!!) and all is well :) Its just ligament pain from my little boy growing! hee hee. Its especially painful if i get outa bed quickly , or sit up quickly, or sneeze. It comes and goes for me every few weeks :) Hope ur doing well!

Thanks for the responses - yeah I was wondering if it might be round ligament pain or something. Yeah, I suppose it kind of does feel like that happymommy - I'm only thankful that it only lasts a few seconds! Can't imagine what labour's going to be like! Congratulations on the boy Chris!! Do you have any idea of names yet?

Thanks Lala - yea we think hes going to be Harrison James..we chose that name about a year ago for our first born son, but kept changing between James Harrison and Harrison James, but now Harrison J is on the cards! hehe

I know how you feel its sore! I went to the docs with it as its so sore to walk, I can barely walk around the supermarket, she said its ligaments but if it gets really bad might need to consider physio therapy eeek! Im only 24wks I am ma__sive, I just hope it doesnt get any worse the bigger you get - does anyone know if it does get worse?

Most definately Round Ligament Pain...Mine continues down into my groin...The round ligament follows the line of a VERY high cut bathingsuit....
