im so happy im pregnant cause i have thyroid issues and miscarried last yr.  so i have my first prenatal appt on the 17th.

i just had a question, anybody have leg pain.  i went to sleep fine last night but in the middle of the night i had pain from my thigh hip area to my knee.  it felt i had to pop it, so i stretched last night and went back to bed.  but it was killing me.  everytime i moved it hurt. i had to switch position and put a pillow between my legs.  its in my left leg.  it hurts to walk and it hurts to lay down.  its very uncomfortable.  im going to see the doctor tomorrow to make sure.  just wanted to know if any of u ladies have felt this pain.  i was reading online and so far it sounds like round ligament pain. 

i dont know exactly my due date, if i calculate by my last menstral i would be about 5 or 6 wks.

Yes it very well could be round ligament pains. They say it doesn't usually happen til the second trimester when things are stretching more but it can happen earlier too. I'm 18 wks and when I sit or stand too long I get the pain under my butt (top of my thighs and legs in the back). It generally goes away once I start moving  or change positions.

 YES! I had to go the ER Sunday bc I was hurting so bad and thought I was having and Ectopic but they reassured me I was just having round ligament pain. I dont remember having it with my DD this early. My next appointment is on the 20th so I have right about 2 weeks left.....Ugggg Tylenol has been my BFF lol!!
