    Hi just wondered if anyone has had this. I was on my back and must have stretched and my lower belly had like a sharp stitch pain and same happened when i tried to turn to my left side, almost as if i'd stretched myself. Havent ahd same feeling since but it only happened when i stretched or moved to side.Is it Normal? You know what its like we worry about everything!

    Hey! I'm 14 weeks preg with our 1st child so am new to this but
    my husband is an obsessive googler / paranoid father to be! I get this 'ripping' 'pulled' sensation regularly and it happens when I move suddenly in bed or get up from the sofa too quickly. I believe it's just the ligaments adjusting to pregnancy - I certainly know it's caused no harm as I was scanned yesterday :)

    Hubby is assuring me it's called 'round ligament pain' :)
