For some mothers, the small bump at the end of the sternum is visible. The xiphoid process is the technical term for a cartilaginous extension at the bottom of the sternum.

One of the most commonly affected is called the Round Ligament, and it is located along the sides of your uterus running down to your pubic bone. It has a very important job to do supporting you and your baby!
