Last night i was drinkin hot milk in bed, and it went down the wrong way and i kind of choke coughed really hard. I got such a strong shoot of pain in my well my uterus area.

Could i have done any damage there? Sometimes i get a pain like that when i sneeze too.

I think its everything growing and stretching down there, I've been getting the same.

It frightened me and i just froze. I was afraid it might have started another mc.

I get this. My midwife explained it's the ligaments... they are like the elastic ropes on those bungee trampolines holding your uterus in the middle and sometimes they 'twang'

Wow mouseketool so thats what it is. Its ok though right? Nothing to worry about?
It was such a sharp pain and took my breath away i was so afraid.

It's fine. It goes away after a few seconds right?

Good to know what it is! I've got this too - hay fever has been really painful!!

I get it sometimes when I go from sitting to standing - I double up in pain for a few seconds and DH gets worried!

Oh gosh round ligament pain. Sneezing/coughing/turning over in bed were the main culprits for me.

I got it again today after i sneezed, it really is such a strong jabbing pain.

Buffy aw thats a nightmare, i hope your hayfever clears up soon!

I had it now and again with number DS1. I rember the first time I got it, and thinking 'oh my god, how will i cope with labour'.
With DD1, I got it a little more, when sneezing, coughing etc.
Im 37 with number 3, and get it every bloody day!!
Mainly when I turn over in bed. It takes me a few minutes sometimes, just to turn over.
Also if i've been sat at my desk in work for too long, its uncomfortable standing up.
I found gently rubbing the area eased it a bit quicker.

Del1 Yes rubbin the area helps ease it for me too. Gosh every day, thats a lot! I'm thankful its just when i sneeze or cough so far!

Yes, it's a sharp, twangy feeling and I suffer from hay fever so it's all day long at the moment. I have learnt to kind of curl up and brace myself when I sneeze. Poor little thing must think there's an earthquake! However, it hurts less as the weeks pass
