Stich-like pain
Dear Gynae Doc

On Saturday, I felt a stich-like pain in my lower abdomen. I was walking at the time. I am 23 weeks pregnant and I know that its too early for braxton hicks contractions. It was quite painful and lasted for about 1 minute.
What could it be?

It could just be stretching of the ligaments of the uterus. If it has not happened again, there should not be need for concern.
