    Yes, that sounds like round ligament pains - which means your uterus is growing and pulling the ligaments that surround it, I think. The pain can be pretty uncomfortable - kind of like a stitch, or a dull ache in your lower uterus area - perhaps on one side only. I started having them at 13 weeks.

    Yes, I think so. It's everything stretching to make room for bubs.
