Painful cramping around 19 weeks?

I have cramping on my left side. Almost like period cramps. It's painful when I walk, but calms down a bit when I sit down. Is this everything stretching and the baby growing? I'm hoping it subsides on its own.

  • Could be ligament pain - if you are concerned though, call the doctor.  I was super cautious if something just didn't feel right. 10 times out of 10, everything was fine - but I felt better talking to the doctor.
  • I'm assuming this is what it is.  I've noticed more pains when I get up (after sitting for a while), and that's what I've told myself is happening.

  • I would rest and drink some more water.  Are the cramps coming in any kind of regular pattern?

    Thanks. No, no regular pattern.

  • I do get a lot of pain in my sides, but it has never felt like a period cramp, more like stretching. When I take walks, I get a horrible cramp in my right side, but I think it is a side stitch b/c I keep walking and it goes away. It am sure it is just stretching. Hope it passes soon!
  • If it feels like period cramping then I would definitely put a call into the OB just to ask about it.

    At the very least, I would try to make note of when it happens (like is it right after walking, or maybe after you've eaten a big meal, or maybe on a day when you haven't had enough to drink) and see if you can tell a pattern and that will help you determine if you need to mention it at your next appt.
