I'm having some sharp pains in my lower tummy, in the front. They come sometimes when I laugh or cough, but mostly when I sit... Especially if it's in a low seat.

It's not exactly cramps... And i'm not sore like muscles are stretching or whatever. Is this ligaments stretching or something I should worry about?

This is ligament pain. Your tummy and uterus are stretching a lot during this time. I'll bet you've also noticed you are growing faster and faster as the days wear on, huh?

Pains are common. If they cause too much discomfort, please contact your doctor.
