Round Ligament Pain During pregnancy

  • Round ligament pain during pregnancy can either be a sharp stabbing pain or a dull ache in the lower part of your abdomen or groin.
  • Round ligament consists of horizontal and vertical muscles that hold the uterus in place from the back and front of your pelvis
  • The round ligaments in the front stretch and thicken to accommodate your widening girth; it also moves up
  • As this tummy of yours expands you may experience a painful tug at the front especially when you make sudden movements e.g. when you cough or get up from the sofa or bed or when you roll over in bed.
  • You may also experience this pain after a hectic day or when you have been particularly up and about
  • The pain may either travel from the side to deep inside your groin and it can be felt on one or both sides
  • When round ligament pain hits you, sit down and relax.
  • Lie down on your side with one pillow under your belly and the other between your legs
  • Take a warm bath
  • Pelvic rock may help shift the weight of your baby and take some pressure off the ligaments
  • If you find this pain occurring when you walk a lot, try and cut back and see if it makes any difference
  • If walking a lot is on your agenda, wear flats and take breaks to rest and relax in between
