  • Get to the dr soon so u can find out how far u are. In the begining you'll have round ligament pain wich can be sharp snf painful. As long as u are not bleeding you're prolly fine. Vol.

  • Could be anything. Most likely round ligament pains. Your uterus is just starting to grow, sothe ligaments attaching it to your internal body part are stretching, and that can be painful. Cramping with heavy bleeding is indicative of a miscarriage. Unless you're bleeding, I wouldn't stress, but you can try a warm compress (not hot!!) to relieve some of the pain. Congratulations!!

  • I had really sharp pain (especially with my first) as my uterus and muscle around that area were stretching. Sometimes is was so bad I had to lie down for a minute. I would definitely mention it to your OBGYN when you see one, but unless you have bleeding or cramping (like a period) I wouldn't worry about. Your body is just making room for the baby.

  • I'm experiencing the same thing and I'm about 9 weeks pregnant. My doctor said it was just my uterus preparing for the baby and stretching out and that it was nothing to be concerned about. I've even experienced some light spotting and he said it was all normal as long as the bleeding didn't get heavier or turn bright red and as long as the pain didn't get worse. Definitely make an appointment asap either way though, you should start your prenatal appointments early and they can also check everything out to ease your mind about the pains you are having. Good luck and congratulations!

  • I agree with everything tha the above^^^^ ladies said. I will add that with each additional child, you cramp more and more.

  • Just found out 10 minutes ago that I'm pregnant, I'm dealing with the same thing which was my first indicator that maybe I am pregnant. Had it with my DD's. Gotta love round ligament pain :)

  • i had them with my first pregnancy and honestly i thought i was having a miscarriage because when i was 18 i had a miscarriage and it felt similar but it ended up just being the pain or cramping from the baby attaching to the unterus but if you are ever in doubt call a doctor as soon as you can and make an appointment to have them check you out, and watch the progression, dont stress though its not good for the baby or for your well being either!! you will be fine!

  • and i bled a little too which scared the crap out of me but i guess its all a part of the process even though with my second child i never had any of the cramps i did with the first and i never bled. good luck madame!!!
