Straining my Uterus?!

I've noticed that if I have to get up quickly, or get out of bed quickly, it feels like my uterus is being strained (kind of like a pulled muscle). Is this normal? I don't remember it with my first. Maybe it's because I'm using my abdominal muscles??

Just kind of curious to see if anyone else is feeling something simlar...

Sounds like it's more round ligament stretching. How high is it?

It's pretty low in my abdomen. It really feels like it's my whole uterus that feels pulled/sharp pains. But it only lasts for about 10 to 20 seconds.

if it's really low, i'd say it is round ligament pain. I get the same thing when I turn over too fast or get up too quickly as well.

Gotcha. Never knew about the round ligament pain (as I've never had it before) so wasn't quite sure what I was feeling.

Thanks!

It has literally stopped me in my tracks before. I went to pick up my son's sippy cup and I had to stop and breathe. My husband jumped up so fast lol!

I would say it was that too. I had it a lot early on with #2. Oh, and when I was sitting and sneezed it was really bad.

Yep. Round ligament pain. I get it when I cough, stretch, roll over in bed.... pretty annoying!

Lurker from May. All The Time. At first I thought it was because i had a c/s previously because it does it quite often earlier on and now just every now and then, like you said getting out of bed or something. I also got my pg journal from my first and I had it then to, just later on I forgot!

I've definitely got this too. Mostly when I get up off the couch really quickly. I've scared my husband a couple times with it.

Yes, I get it too, it paralyzes me it hurts that bad. It doesn't happen too often though.
