At 19weeks. I am having pain on my left side & it goes around to the back some times but also the pains move to the right. It just started a few days a go. and it didnt feel like a cramp like my period it was worst it was on for 5 mins then off for a while then back on. I called my Doctor and they said to drink a lot of water. Is anyone else having this? If so what is this pain and will it go away? This is our "Mircale Baby" I am just a little scared... Thanks

  • It sounds like round ligament strectching. It will be ok and fluids will help ease the pain.

  • I hope and pray so. B/c I read all kinds of stuff on the web and it scares me. I am not bleeding. I go in next week for my 20 week ultra sound. My mom asked me if I had a heart montior and I cant find a good one for a good price.. Thanks for getting back to me so fast.

  • Normal. round ligament pain. But talk to your doctor about it next time you see him.

  • Depending on the intensity of pain I would guess kidney stone. I have had kidney stones since I was 13 and they occur int he area you are describing and the pain can be referred sometimes (switch sides). They also are very common during pregnancy, I had four individual stones during my pregnancy. The intensity of kidney stones is like nothing else. Drinking water would be one of the recommendations to help the stones along.

  • I actually have that problem also.I will be 20 weeks pregnant tomorrow. I get sharp pains on either side and sometime really low in my uterus. i went to my obgyn and she said the were normal pains or sometimes called " stupid pains". lol. She said sometimes pains just occur but not to b to worried, but yopu still will probaly want to talk to your doctor to feel more at ease.
