    Is it normal to experience a sharp, rather short pain after sneezing in your pubic area? I mean, it was like a cramp like feeling. I do not know if that is normal. I has happened the last two times I have sneezed.

    I'm assuming it is as I too get the same dashing pain each time I sneeze; which as it's spring is happening more and more. Hurts more if I brace myself.. Here's wishing summers arrives soon...

    Totally normal don't worry.

    and ESWIFT is right the more you brace yourself the more it hurts. so just relax and enjoy the perks of pregnancy! :rofl:

    I have Rhinitis so i'm a really sneezy person and it's been hurting me for the whole 9 weeks when i sneeze.

    It's usually associated with the ligaments stretching in your lower abdomen. They're already under pressure, and the extra quick pressure when sneezing can cause pain. It isn't hurting your baby, so don't worry. :hugs:

    i get this also if i get up too quickly ... thought it might just be stretching or looser muscles or something so good to read everyone's thoughts!

    I remember when it happened with my first pregnancy. I was laying down on my back and I sneezed....ended up rolling around on the bed in pain thinking what the heck?!?!?!. Now when I feel a sneeze coming on I either bring my knees up to my chest if I am sitting or laying down or I bend over if I am standing.....then I dont get the pain.
