Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

i am 21 weeks pregnant and i get this random pain in my stomach that feels like she is trying to stretch right out of me! is this normal? whats going on? p.s. this is my first baby

I'm about as far along as you, but this is my 2nd. Some of those random pains are the normal stretching out of muscles. I tend to get some occasional pains in the sides of my lower abdomen, usually when rolling over in bed or trying to sit up. Depending on how the baby is sitting and your size you may feel different little pains. To put your mind at ease you should bring it up with your doctor. You can show exactly where the pains are happening and they can tell you if there is a reason for concern.
