I'm pregnant and use the bathroom standing up when I finished and turned after wiping I felt stabing feeling on my leftside of abdomen why?

Ligaments: Often times when one feels this stabbing or pulling sensation in pregnancy, it's due to ligaments from the uterus that are stretching. It can be super painful, and alarming too, because the pain can come out of nowhere, but typically it resolves after a few minutes, even if you may need to lie down to do so. Don't worry, you haven't hurt anything. A warm bath can always help too. Good luck! ...Read more

I'm currently 115 pds and just found out I'm pregnant. I look bloated but wondering what week will my abdomen start feeling hard? I'm showing already

Thin preggos!: JeanineH-first, Congratulations! Generally the uterus is at the belly button at 20 weeks, so this is when your belly will start "feeling harder". Your having bloating right now from all of the hormones you are secreting. When you are ready to have your baby, your uterus sits right under your breastbone. That's when your belly feels really hard! Good luck! ...Read more
