Ligament pain.....

I have been having some serious pain in the top of my stomach lately. Just seen the doctor on Tuesday for my check up, Im 31 wks pg as of tomorrow and she said its just ligament pain. I remember having the same pain with my 1st but not this bad. Anyone have any suggestions for the pain? Anything that will help relieve some of it would be great! Its really starting to kill me!

my ligament pain is on the left side of the front of my pelvic bone, so I dunno if its different. I had to take medical leave because I can barely walk, putting weight on my left leg is agony. It doesnt help that these leg cramps shoot me out of bed at night before my mind can register that it will probably make me cry for the next 15 minutes because of the "there is a soldering iron being jabbed into your pelvis" feeling I get following that.
Heat helps...a little. I have a magic bag full of rice or beans or something of the sort that I heat up and rest tucked under my tummy on my hip and wrapped under me, and it helps some. Otherwise just avoiding movements I KNOW cause it and thats pretty much everything. Good news is apparantly it goes away like, immediately after birth! Doctor said I could take Tylenol (and NOTHING else) if it got really bad, but I would prefer to just use the heat pack and have an excuse to lay down on the couch whenever I want.

I too had the same thing. The only thing that helped me was to relax, try not to stress out, and lay down. :) Here's to hoping it doesn't get too bad!

I'm only 14 weeks pregnant with baby #3 and I've already had some "stop-me-in-my-tracks" ligament pain. Apparently, it can get worse with each additional pregnancy... and certainly has for me. Anyway, the only thing that helps me is to get up slowly and to try not to make any really quick movements. Then breath through the pain when it does occur.
