Tonight I have a weird pain, I guess it would be described as in my groin area. It feels like I strained something but I also feel a lot of pressure. I wonder if the baby is sitting on a nerve? Is it something I should be concerned about? I have a 21 month old and couldn't pick her up tonight to put her to bed. Thank goodness for my DH!

Not sure if it is the same, but I have been feeling some soreness in my groin as well like I have done a really strenuous workout. I notice it most if I am on my feet a lot and more towards the evening. It usually feels better after I rest for awhile.

Thanks so much for the reply! I also read online that our hormones cause joints to relax and sometimes too much, especially in the groin area after the first trimester.

Rest helped and I feel much better but wonder why my pregnancy books never mentioned this fun fact. My DH said it is a very good thing it is not up to men to have babies! *LOL*

I get that feeling when I try to take a walk... after about 20 minutes all of that belly-bouncing just strains my abdominal muscles, I guess.

My solution has been low-impact exercise like an elliptical machine. Or, lately, sitting on the couch.
