Sometimes not always sneeze i get a sharp pain in my lower belly. It hurts for about 10-15 seconds then subsides. Is this normal? Im 14 weeks and today when it happened it literally made me drop to my knees. Its the only time i get pain but i was wondering if it was something that should happen?

Sneezing can be quite the ab work out. Like doing crunches

Could be round ligament pain. Sneezing causes it to rapidly stretch which HURTS!

This happens to me too, and am also curious to know what it means or what is happening....

I was told it's round ligament pain...can happen if you move too fast or cough too.

I'm 18 wks 5 days and now when I sneeze sometimes my little one gets startled and I can feel him or her move a lot. ;-)

It's normal, unfortunately....Your body is stretching and making room for the baby. I'm almost 37 weeks with baby #3 and seems like it gets worse with each baby. Some days, I'm even afraid to sneeze or cough because it'll cause that pain which hurts! lol :)
