Pulled muscle while sneezing


Every time I sneeze I seem to pull a muscle in my lower right ab. Area. I thought it would be normal as the baby got bigger but I'm only 8-10 weeks (haven't sent he doctor yet). I heard some where that this could be a sign for multiples???? Anybody had this?

If you can in time: I suggest pulling one or both knees up to your chest before coughing, sneezing, or anything like that and it will help not stretch the muscles lol

I got this from around 8/10 weeks too. But there is only one in there!

I usually try to bend slightly or pull my knees towards my chest just before I sneeze or cough 'cos that really helps!

Ouch! I know the feeling...I pulled a muscle/bruised a rib right under my right breast from coughing, and its really sharp when I cough, sneeze, blow my nose etc. Which sucks because I'm still getting over a cold w/ cough.

It's actually the round ligaments that you tug on when you sneeze or get up too fast. Hold your belly from below to support it if you're about to sneeze or get up from a seated/lying position, and that should help.

Quote:
Your uterus is normally the size of a pear. Thick ligaments, one of which is called the round ligament, hold your uterus in suspension within your abdomen. As the uterus grows in size and weight, these ligaments become very long and thin, stressing and tensing like rubber bands.

The ligaments pull and tug on nearby nerve fibers and sensitive structures, causing pain. The severity of pain can worry you. Although round ligament pain is uncomfortable, it is also very normal.

A ligament spasm, an involuntary contraction or cramp, usually triggers a sharp pain. These spasms are found more frequently on the right side than the left because of the normal tendency of the uterus to turn to the right.
