Round ligament pain?

Since Saturday I've been getting random pains along my bikini line on the right side/groin area. Everything I know is leading me to believe this is RLP.

I've been sick since Friday though with a mild cold, but just enough that I've been sneezing and coughing a lot. Also, DH's BIL is living with us temporarily and my 2 yr old nephew has decided I'm his best friend. Trying to relax while he's around is almost impossible and he likes to play rough. I've tried to avoid him but yesterday he was intent on playing the "run over to me and I pick him up and put him aside on the couch" game. Ug.

I'm guessing I over did something. Laying on my left side doesn't give relief though as it feels like my belly is pulling the ligament worse. It seems to be fine if I'm sitting still but worse if I so much as re-position myself in a chair or anything. Getting up and using my stomach muscles makes it hurt too and then it sort of spasms a bit.

I don't feel any tightening of my belly so I presume it's not BH or anything like that.

At what point should I be worried or call the midwife maybe?

My doctor said as long as they are on one side of your body they aren't contractions or BH either. It's usually the little one getting bigger!

Ahh yes. After the third person said yesterday to me that I looked bigger in the last few days, I'm figuring that baby hit a growth spurt or something. That combined with the rib pain I've been having as well.

Fun times!

you may have strained it even morre with coughing etc than it was already stretching. give it a few days i think. treat like any other sore ligament. rest and heat maybe Smile
