Pain

Jan 16, 2011 - 5 comments

Its almost 4am and I'm wide awake. I've been having pains in my lower right side/leg/back since 3pm yesterday! The nurse on call said its probably just round ligament pain but now I can't sleep. I've never experienced this before and it scares me. I'll be 12 weeks today and just worry that something could be wrong or could I actually have to deal with this for the next 28 weeks?!?!? There isn't one position that is comfortable in fact some positions actually make the pain worse. I have feeling if my husband finds out in the morning we'll be headed to the ER. Even though I have no other symptoms (bleeding etc) I still worry. How am I supposed to take care of my 14 month old if I'm in constant pain?! ahhhh!!

i had that early on adn thought i was crazy. Then last week at 18 weeks i could not stand straight because it hurt so bad. when laying down i could not roll onto my right side. I went to the doc and he confirmed it, round ligament pain. He said there was no blood in my urine and no fever so he ruled out bladder and appendix... told me to "bear with it" and this too shall pass (and possibly come back!)... oh the joys of pregnancy.

Surprisingly my doc thought it was a kidney stone!!! she thought I was too early to be feeling round ligament pain. I haven't had it since that day forunately! but I definitely feel my uterus when I move around in my sleep, which is weird since I didn't with my first. Did your pain go away? ahh any pain makes me so nervous!!!!

my pain started at about 3am and by 7pm it was gone. My doctor says it may come and go. It seriously feels like a sharp stabbing pain. As long as i dont bend or put pressure of any sort on that side i usually cant feel it.
