REALLY uncomfortable stretching feeling!!

Hello! I'm 19 weeks with 1st baby and although I know its normal to experience stretching ligament type sensations as areas grow and expand, for the the last three or so days I have felt constant STRETCHING feelings that are really significant and uncomfortable - not painful at all but as though I'm just going to burst!! Is this pretty normal? is there a mega growth spurt going on??

It was around the same kind of time I felt the same, I don't know if it was ligaments but I had pains all around my bump and rib cage that would last a few days then go away then come back a couple of weeks later. It's a bit disconcerting but you get used to it! Best thing for me was going swimming as everything went weightless and I liked feeling I was staying fit

It's a really weird feeling!! Like I can actually feel the stretching as it's happening!!

It is a strange feeling but totally normal... i find that giving my belly a gentle massage with a natural oil helps - give it a try.x
