Help with round ligament pain

(4 Posts)

I’m 13 weeks with second baby and the pain is really intense down my right side. I don’t remember it being this bad with my first!

Any tips for managing the pain?

Just be careful when you move. Proper round ligament pain should only flare up with movement, when you stand up from seated, roll over, sit up in bed, etc. Just be as slow and deliberate as possible when you make those movements. I definitely found mine was more intense this time around (3rd pregnancy). I was getting them before I even got a positive test.

An osteopath really helped me with various pelvic pains during pregnancy. In London, can highly recommend him.

@mindutopia that’s interesting. Mine has been permanent for the past couple of days and very painful. I’m not sure what else it could be though?

@CSLewis that’s a good idea, thanks! I actually have seen a very good osteopath before so I’ll give him a call.
