When I was in labor with my son the contractions were not painful and I just felt the pressure. Then when I decided to move to my left side I felt this sharp stabbing pain pinpointed somewhere around my left ovary. It felt like a knife cutting my bone. The pain was excruciating and continuous, independent of contractions. So far I thought that had something to do with labor and it was just a natural pain. I went to a new chiropractor last week and she said the pain was actually a sprained round ligament. I was probably having a contraction at the same time I move and it sprained the ligament. I was researching about round ligament pain and everyone says even though it is EXTREMELY painful, it goes away after 10 to 20 minutes. Well, mine lasted for 9 hours nonstop, until I finally got the epidural. After the baby was born I didn't feel it anymore. Has anyone felt this or know exactly what it is?
