  • I think you should go to the emergency room. If you want to get your doubts.

  • It is more then likely round ligament pain, totally normal things are just shifting and changing positions and it's uncomfortable. You need to bring it up at your first doctor's appointment. And if the pain or pressure increases or you begin to have any other symptoms you should go to the ER.

  • You haven't had a sonogram yet?  If you have its not ectopic.  If you have not, ectopic pregnancy is very dangerous and you need to go to the er.

  • I agree w/ mamakenzi probly just ligament pain, you'll start feeling all sorts of pains now. Dont' panic, try gently stretching to loosen the area, make sure you're drinking plenty of water.

  • Yes, I had this...when I was 5 month's really hurts..and it even hurt when I would try to walk..I called my doc and she said that it was a ligament pain, becuase this was my first was probably stretching...just try and sit down,drink water,enjoy being pregnant! :) you will probably miss it after you give birth! I did,anyway. If your pain gets unbearable.I would go to the hospital.

  • You would not have made it to 13 weeks if it were ectopic. Maybe give the nurse a call at the doctors office you used before and they can set your mind at ease.
