  • It's probably your ligaments stretching, they kind of hold the uterus like a basket and stretch out to hold the ever expanding organ - I used to have them all the time, they are frightening and feel like you're being stabbed - but call or go see the OB just to be sure!

  • I think you should go to a doctor. it is better safe than sorry.

  • I'd definitely call your OB. When I had sharp pains with my younger 2 boys, I went into preterm labor. With my 4th pregnancy, I had sharp pains starting at 10 weeks and lost the baby at 12 weeks.
