As your baby and uterus grow, your body must adjust. You may feel a pull or sudden sharp pain low in your stomach area. This is called Round Ligament Pain. These are like bands hooked to both sides of the womb and hold it in place. The baby growing stretches these bands. Warm baths, getting up slowly or lying on the painful side with a pillow between your knees can help.
Smoking and drinking alcohol can hurt your baby. You must stop now! If you need help, talk to your case manager.
