  • If something does not feel right then go.

  • I had that in early pregnancy as well. The doctor couldn't tell what was causing it, but I'm pretty sure it was the baby sitting really low. I'm 26 weeks now and he still gets down really low sometimes.

    Go in if it makes you feel better though! Always better safe than sorry!

  • That is super common after 25 weeks, but now is way early to feel that sensation. If you can't reach your dr, call your hospital's L&D and speak with an RN.

  • It sounds normal to me. However, if you are worried, then be seen. FYI: I would be concerned about not being able to contact your doctor. You are paying him for the service.

  • I think you should call L&D and see what they say. While I'm sure everything is fine, it wouldn't hurt to get checked out. If you feel worried or think something's not right, I'd def. go in.

  • L&D usually wont even see you until you are 20 weeks in my area, if you go into the ER that is. It sounds pretty normal to me, if you see spotting or anything like that i would be worried. If you still feel the pain then maybe make an early appointment for tomorrow?

  • I would say it's normal, but I haven't experienced it. My suggestion is bed rest until you do get thru to your doctor. You can always call L&D and ask a nurse before you go up there.
