    Is it just stretching? I've not been exerting myself in anyway but the past couple of days I've been getting a stitch on my bump when walking in town. In some ways it feels like he's sticking a leg right out or something.

    Is it bubs or is it my body stretching? It feels like a stitch as if I've been running but instead of on my side it's on the bump. :shrug:

    I had this for about two days, and the following week my belly arrived. I looked it up online,and a number of women said it's ligament stretching. Trouble is, I had lifted a really heavy bin bag over my shoulder the day before, and had actually pulled a tummy muscle, so I was pretty concerned. Turns out it was the stretching though.

    I had this last week and asked the doctor, she said it was ligament stretching. It was horrible pain. All natural though and it went away within a day for me.

    However, if you're worried you should talk to your doctor/mw.
