Round ligament pain.... any suggestions?

I'm 18 weeks today, and for the last couple days I've been SO sore. This is my first (I hear it's worse then) and I've always been built small. I'm tall, but I have long legs, short waist and narrow hips, and everything's pushing right out front. I know some of you have had some lovely round ligament pain and I was just wondering what you did for relief. I don't want to take anything unless it's absolutely necessary.

Re: Round ligament pain.... any suggestions?

Not to depress you, but the aches and pains are about 20 times worse the second time around, for me anyway. Just try to take it really easy, and whatever you do, don't walk really fast or run. My husband is a very fast walker and has had to slow it down a little because I can only walk so fast and I refuse to kill myself trying to keep up. I really don't know of much you can do, other than try to move really slowly. I'm sorry I can't be of much help, other than sympathizing!

Re: Round ligament pain.... any suggestions?

Amen Greenberry,
This is my second (and last) and it is killing me. I can not move without feeling like I am pulling a muscle. The sharp stabbing pain just shoots through my lower stomach...Ounch!!!! I do not remember it that bad with Austin. I keep thinking I am only 4 months how am I going to get through the rest of this pregnancy?!

What I do is usually stop when you feel the slightest pull, and then go back exactly the way you came and try it again only slower. Like if you are rolling over in bed, get about half way and OUCH!!! Stop right there and roll back exactly like you came, then try it again in a min.

Re: Round ligament pain.... any suggestions?

Siren,

Oh my god.........I am feeling the same way. I will be 18 weeks tomorrow and I am just feeling lousy. I am having a lot of pain....like right above my pubic bone, and there is so much pressure! I'm guessing that is the round ligament pain that they are talking about..... I'm scared because if I'm this uncomfortable now..........at 18 weeks, what's going to happen at 9 months! This too is my first.......and it has been no picnic. From morning sickness to severe leg cramps.......I seem to have them all.

I'm glad I'm not the only one feeling these bad uncomfortable pains..........I have a feeling that we are both in for it!!!!
