Yesterday I started having this sharp pain under my belly, sort of hip level, on the right side. It kind of came and went. I first noticed it when I was on the elliptical, so I stopped. It went away for a little while and then came back with a vengeance. For a while it REALLY hurt and I had to breath through it. If I pressed into where it hurt it was slightly tender at times, and then a few times it resulted in more stabbing pain. Then it just went away. I wasn't having contractions at all, my uterus was totally soft most of the time. (I'm 31 weeks). Any ideas?

I agree, sounds like round ligament pain to me too! I get it every now and then and it really HURTS, it's a sharp stabbing pain, and I get afraid to move.

sounds exactly like round ligament and it can actually "bruise" I found out. Talk with your doc or midwife to find out if this is a signal from your body to slow down the exercise or if you can wear a belly support and continue.

Appendicitis can also sometimes cause "rebound pain" on the right side - did it hurt when you released pressure (I wasn't quite sure from your description)? Just throwing that out there, sorry if I worry you.

I bet it is just round ligament pain - that can be really bad and is very common. Mostly I would notice it when I changed positions but sometimes it was all day long, it seemed. Hope you feel better soon.

I say probably round ligament pain. I get it on both sides and espescially when I'm moving my legs in any sort of way or getting out of the bed or really just moving around at all sometimes seems to make it hurt. It's the ligament stretching so you probably just need to slow down a little when it's bothering you. Some days mine hurts a lot it seems no matter what I'm doing and other days I never have it at all. It hurts like crazy though! Last night in the bed I rolled over to quickly I guess and it hurt so bad I actually yelled out loud.
