Im just over 18 weeks with my first baby, since last night i have been getting the odd pain in my groin area, either left, right or in the middle. They arent severe or last long. I dont have to be doing anything for them to start. I wasnt sure if this is something that just happens or to ring the midwife tomorrow? I did do pregnancy yoga yesterday, but doesnt feel like muscle pains. confused

Are they like stabbing pains? I had those they soon pass.

it might be ligament pain. if you google your round ligament you'll see (some pretty grim diagrams) that show it's a ligament that holds your uterus in place. as your uterus grows the ligament stretches and give you a really odd pain to the right and left of your groin.
I'm 17+4 and am feeling this ALL the time.. my MW explained what it was.

They are stabbing and dont really last! I have googled the pains, it came up with round ligament, spd and all sorts of grim things! So i stopped googling and thought id ask you ladies! Thank you katy smile

Hi Freeangel, I am 18 weeks tomorrow with first baby and I have been having similar pains to you for a few days now! Sometimes they are stabbing and sometimes it feels like cramp. I have done a few google searches and apparently it is quite normal for some pregnnant women to have this - thank god! smile

Phone the midwife or get an appointment they dodn't mess around and would rather help.

Cos it's probably ligaments but best to check for your own peace of mind.
