Well when I first went in his office, I had already told the nurse and I told him what I told her about the pain and thats when he said he had some good news and some bad news and he asked me which one I wanted first. I told him the bad news, he said the bad news is that you have to suck it up and buy a maternity support belt and the good news was that I was having a baby. I was so mad. Then after that he asked me questions about my past pregnancies and he said he was about to give me an ultrasound to check the baby's heart beat and to make sure I didnt have twins. He gave me an ultrasound after he already told me to suck it up and buy a support belt. I dont think he checked thoroughly because he didn't even mention the fibroid tumor that I have, that my last doctor observed before I even got pregnant. I didnt tell him about the fibroid tumor after he told me to suck up the pain because I wanted to see if he would catch it but he didnt. And like I said he didn't even say what the cause of the pain could be or anything, he just said to suck it up. I'm really concerned and I'm thinking about going to the ER on Saturday. I live in Japan and I have to deal with the Naval Hospital so the OB/Gyn is in the hospital so I'm afraid that if I go to the ER during the week, they may just send me upstairs to the OB/Gyn.
If you have ahd an u/s and everything is fine, it could be round ligament pain..I would get them really bad on my lower abdomen and they were extremely painful for me
It is possible if you've not made sure the pregnancy is in the uterus that it could be Ectopic like Majikat said. I'd suggest going to the ER to be seen just to rule some of these out.
Have you had an ultrasound yet? To make sure the pregnancy is in the uterus
Thats what I'm thinking about doing, going to the ER because he should have checked me out!
Have you considered changing doctors at all? Or is it even a possibility? No doctor should ever tell you to suck it up, especially at any point in a pregnancy. In terms of the question, the pain could be a lot of things. It could be kidney stones, an infection, round ligament-though this shouldn't be quite that painful, and a few others, but I'm not sure you would be getting them at this point. You need to be looked at to see what the cause is. Go to the ER if you have to.
