Lots of you probably know this already, but this is a trick that really, really helps me. If you feel a cough or a sneeze coming on, tighten up your abdominals (like you're trying to suck in your stomach or do a crunch) and squeeze your pelvic floor muscles (do a kegel) FIRST. Really helps prevent round ligament pain due to coughing or sneezing.

Oh, and my doc refers to RL pain as "pulling pains". I thought that was funny, never have heard that term before!

Yup, learned this trick pretty fast with my first one. Also: start wearing panty liners now! Curling up and/or tightening your abdominal muscles will make it more likely for you to pee a little.

I've already felt the horrible twinges in my lower half that means i'll be limping soon (my uterus pulls hard to the right making a horrible pain my left thigh) *sigh*
