Have you felt any sharp, sticking, pulling, or stretching feelings down the sides of your tummy,? They might appear up at belly-button level, or down in the groin, and they are sure uncomfortable! This very common feeling during pregnancy causes a lot of concern – especially in first time mamas, but it’s just the ligaments that hold your uterus in place complaining about how much they have to stretch! If you find yourself bothered by these pains, you can take about 5 to 20 drops of St. John’s Wort tincture, apply a castor oil pack or hot water bottle, or massage the area with castor oil. You can also avoid the pains by avoiding sudden movements, especially when making outward movements with your legs.
