  • Most nurses won't give you advise. They will tell you that if you think it is really bad then you should come in and be examined. If you are pregnant, there isn't anything that they can do for you at this stage of pregnancy, I am sorry to say that. Put your feet up and try to relax. You can call your oncall Doctor through the medical exchange and talk to them about what they think is best for you. There is no substitution for a doctors advise.

  • Why would you go to the ER for that?

  • I don't see it as an emergency unless you are doubled over in pain from your left side hurting. Wait and make a doctors appointment. I wish you the best.

  • I had that once, and it was a mis-carriage. Call a nurse advisor at a urgent care dept. Speak to them and if they say for you to come in, go in.

  • I would do like BingsMommy said, call an urgent care nurse. They can give you advise.

  • Have you had a positive pregnancy test? If so, it would be a tubal pregnancy. I do agree with the PPs about calling the urgent care nurse. They can ask you questions to help you rule things out. Good luck!

  • I meant to say it COULD be a tubal pregnancy, not WOULD!
