  • Would you describe the pain as severe? Does it stop you in your tracks, take your breath away, make you double over, etc? If so, head to the ER. Or if you start to bleed heavily, head to the ER. Otherwise, I would just wait it out and assume it's a bug, unless you start to spot or bleed. If that happens in addition to the pain, then I would call the doctor.

  • i remember this pain.... its your uterus at the top stretching........ big time!!! making room for baby... and they continue til about 12 weeks, and then slowly decrease and time wise... it starts to spread out... i started stretching and do a bit of yoga to get my muscles stretched out.. but if it gets worse.. i agree with the previous moms... go to the doctors... they would rather you bother them for a little something vs something severe that they should have seen your earlier..
