Anyone having ligament problems?

For the past month I've been getting really bad pain under my belly. Feels like my belly is being sliced open for hip bone to hip bone. Doctor said its just my ligaments and not to worry. It sucks though Sad usually I only get them when I move to quickly getting up or sitting down, bending over, standing up, and getting in and out of vehicles. So as long as I take it easy, I'm okay.....but its hard to when you have 3 kids to tend to.
Lately I've been getting them with contractions, I get the tightening/squeezing along with the ligament pain Sad

Anyone else dealing with this? I never had this with my first 3 pregnancies, just my last one and this one.

I've had some pain below my belly, but it doesn't coincide with my contractions. It just feels like really sore muscles and I can't really stand up straight when it happens. I'm sorry yours is so painful!

I have been having awful RLP!! Mine will start to hurt if I move to quickly, but sometimes it will start hurting when I am just sitting there. I seriously disklike RLP....I would take contractions over it any day!

I have been having the ligament pain below my belly as well. I have it sometimes with out doing anything. I got very stretched out down there with DS so I was guessing that was part of my problem.

Yep. I think our bellies are big enough now that on top of those ligaments getting pulled and being under more stress than usual, now they are also getting stretched on top of it. I am really struggling with it tonight. Whew!

Well....I figured that much! Blum 3
I mean.....usually I only get while moving, but lately like the past week, I don't even have to move and I'll get the ligament pain. Like the other day, I was sitting down watching one of my shows and had been sitting there awhile, when suddenly my ligaments are going crazy, and didn't even do anything!! Drives me nuts.

Could it be related to when baby moves? I would think that as he shifts his weight around it would put pressure on different 'parts' of the muscles and could cause you pain.
