  • I would say if its stopped not to worry, but if its consistant and wont go away call your doctor. I had pains that sound pretty similar, they would stop me in my tracks, but if I just sat down and took it easy they would go away...doc was never worried.

  • Too high up to be round ligament pains probably right? But i would say if you are worried go to the doctor. That's what you pay them for. Good luck.

  • have you had high blood presure? I dont remember if it was sharp pains in yr left or right side that you had to watch for in high blood presure I just remember my doc telling me to watch for it because my blood presure was borderline...If it keep bugging you I would have the doc cheack... Its probably nothing one thing I have learned is with pregnancy comes odd pains :) But better safe then sorry I say :) Good luck! Hope you feel better

  • Have you ever had gall stones? I was diagnosed with gall stones when I was 24 weeks pregnant with my first child. It happened all of a sudden and to be quite honest, I thought I was having a heart attack!

    What had you eaten 4-6 hours before this started?

  • instant oatmeal and some coffee. ive never had gallstones but the pain went away and it hasnt come back yet, do you think it could still be that? thanks ladies!

  • probably not if that is what you ate. Your gall bladder is used only to process fat so if you didnt take in any fat then it wouldnt be affected. But if it happens again then I would really look into it because it is an easy and safe diagnose that is done by u/s
