Weird symptom...I know. I am no thin girl, but I apparently do have some muscle! And when I walk around, I have to push on my tummy in places and rub it because honestly, it feels like my muscles are tearing! I am picturing my stomach getting larger underneath the fat and muscle, so when the muscles reeeeeeally stretch, sometimes it goes too far and almost starts to tear. It's a sharp pain, almost like a stitch in your side from running!
Has anyone else experienced this? I am sure I am fine. It doesn't happen when I am sitting, only when I am walking around and moving and stretching those muscles further. What do you guys think?
My best guess would be your having round ligament pain already. I have been having it when switching from laying on one side over to the next at night time so far, but it does sound like what your describing.
Yep sounds like round ligament pain to me too. My 1st time I experienced it with DS I was walking around at work and it literally felt like someone had stabbed me and ripped the muscles. SOOOO painful! Luckily I learned when it happens to slow down and rest a bit and it won't happen as much or be as painful.
Avoid any activities or exercises which would put more pressure on your six pack muscles (i.e. crunches). If you want you can do some simple and non-strenuous exercises to target your deep abdominal muscles (the transverse abdominals), which should help all around with your abdominal muscles. You should be able to find some on google.
