So this afternoon I have been having strange twinges of pain in my lower right abdomen, about three inches below my belly button and maybe an inch to the right. I called my doctor to see what I should do, and they said they want me to come in tomorrow morning for an ultrasound to make sure it isn't ectopic
I'm super worried. Hopefully it is nothing, and I get to see my bean early and find out that everything is okay.
Or worst case scenario, it is ectopic and we have to start all over again.
I had a lot of these twinges earlier in pregnancy. Hopefully it will make you feel better to know my baby is in the right spot. I think it was just stretching I was feeling. I hope everything is okay and you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Thanks everybody. I am hopeful that it is nothing - I'm not having any spotting, and it is very mild discomfort, but it is still scary to think about. My u/s is at 8:45am tomorrow so hopefully I will have answers soon.
It could be gas pain. I say this because at the exact moment I was having an ultrasound, a huge packet of gas was "hiding" my ovary and it actually felt like I had a cyst on my ovary about to burst and I have a fairly decent tolarance for pain. FX that's all it is!
Oddly enough, the pains have stopped, after being there for two or three hours. I'll keep an eye on things throughout the night and definitely still go for u/s tomorrow. I really hope it is nothing. I got husband all upset too when I told him, so now we are both worrying.
I had something very similar last week and I called my midwife about it. She said that you can have round ligament pain super early in pregnancy as your uterus starts to pop up out of your pelvis. I didn't think it could happen this early, but she said it is just starting to stretch and the ligaments that usually hold it in place need to stretch too and they can hurt a bit as they stretch.
Cautiously expecting a little one sometime in June, and always remembering my 5 little ones that left too soon.
