Random abdominal pains 16 weeks

Hoping this is nothing to be concerned about, it's basically like a period pain I am assuming it's just womb stretching or the baby doing some particularly keen growing? V tired today compared to Monday and Tuesday.

No bleeding or other symptoms.

Any reassurance welcome. So much for sailing calmly through preg no 2!

I had these from around 16 weeks in my last pregnancy. Once my bump was bigger I realised they were Braxton hicks!

If they are not constant/severe it's prob either the above or just stretching/round ligament pain but I'd prob mention to your MW so she can eliminate a uti. smile

Thanks Gunpowder. It's defo not that bad but seeing mw on sat so will mention. They have sent urine sample for testing as it had a bit of protein on Monday but I remember that from first preg and it never amounted to anything.

Aah the joys of pregnancy! I think it's pretty much 40 weeks of worry. Hope rest goes smoothly for you. smile

I am currently 18 weeks I get random pains all the time, i just think if it was really painfull and bleeding then i need to worry, but most of the time its just little stabbing pains or a dull ache is the one im getting a lot of recently.
My midwife said its usually round ligament pain they can feel different sometimes, so I try not to worry smile
