Growing Pains Rss

Dear Expert,

I am currently 14 weeks pregnant and I have been experiencing pressure/mild pain in my groin area lately, especially after being on my feet for long periods of time. Is this normal?

This is my second pregnancy, my son is 9 years old, I started showing at 6 weeks and I haven't stopped growing since. I have had 2 ultrasounds done which confirmed that I am having 1 child.

Would you put this down to growing pains?

I have no bleeding or other symptoms.

Kind Regards
Kathy

Hi Kathy,
Thank you for your enquiry. Yes it sounds as this is stretching discomfort from the ligaments that hold your uterus in place. These are very common and nothing to be concerned about. Try not to stand for long periods without some sitting time as the symptoms will increase. If you are experiencing any bleeding with the pain then you need to be seen by your local doctor.
Best wishes,
Alex.
