funny quick sharp pains

Yesterday afternoon I started getting these random sharp pains. They last 1-2 seconds, sometimes I get a few in 10 minutes, sometimes only once an hour.

They continued until the evening then stopped.

I think they were a little more towards the right, but still close to the centre.

I've had these all my life and I always attributed them to ovulation during my cycle. This is the first time I'm had them since getting pregnant.

Could it be round ligament pains/stretching? It freaked me out a bit....

Hahah. I should have googled it last night:

The most common symptoms of RLP are:

  • Sudden pain in the lower abdomen, usually in the right side of the pelvic area that can extend to the groin.
  • Shooting abdominal pain when performing sudden movements or physical exercise. Pain is sudden, intermittent and lasts only for a few seconds.

Yep, that was what I had. LOL
