For the last two or three days, I have had lower right abdominal pain when I sleep and for a couple of hours after I'm awake and moving. It isn't unbearable, and I can re-position myself to feel perfectly fine. I don't have any other symptoms. I'm 30 weeks pregnant. I do feel the baby moving. I have an OB appt later in the week so I'm hesitant to go in now. What do you think is the problem? Any ideas?

  • I was frequently uncomfortable when I was pregnant, and sometimes it was slightly painful. If the pain is extreme though, I would at least put in a call. You don't have to go in to find out if it's something that needs to be checked out right away, or can wait til later this week. Good luck.

  • i am thinking the baby is resting ona nerve ending and when you move arounda nd move your body differently the baby shifts. but honeslty i would call your OB, there is no shame in being concerned.

  • The thing w/babies, you never know exactly what their pressing on. If it keeps up, for peace of mind, I'd give the Dr. a call, that's why he's there.

  • I agree with Sati. When I was pregnant with my son, he was always laying on nerves and it was so uncomfortable.

  • Maybe a muscle cramp. You should definately tell your doctor just to rule out that it's anything to be concerned about.
