    It sounds strange but on and off throughout my pregnancy so far i have been getting only what can be described as a stitch like sensation down my right side. It can last for several hours & it gets worse when i stand up. When i stand up the pain spreads to my back. It all eases off when i lay down. It hurts when i try to bend down as well when i have it.

    Anybody else get this or something similar??

    Yes I have had this when walking/doing cleaning a lot and occasionally when I have been asleep and go to get up it really hurts. Perfectly normal apparently.

    hiya guy's ive been getting this alot,sometimes its really painful, but from what the docs told me and from what ive read it's something called round ligament pain, it's just everything stretching making room for little baby :) x

    I have that on and off - usually when I've been doing housework/ cleaning! The midwife at the hospital said it's normal. If the pain is really intense it can be a pulled muscle as everything is relaxing but if it comes and goes it is more likely to be round ligament pain.

    Hi. I had this a couple of weeks ago whilst I was on holiday, we were about to go for a nice long walk and I just couldnt bear it, I had to go and lie down. I have no idea what it was!

    Hello, thank you for writing this post - I get stitch although just down my right side - it never goes to my back but as soon as it comes it goes after 5 / 10 minutes - but i do sometimes look like a cripple as I massage my side when i am walking ...... - it is obviously a common thing - another thing to put my mind at rest - thank you girlies xxxxx
