Weird cramping feeling

Posted by on May. 4, 2013 at 1:15 AM

Starting last night actually, around this same time, I started feeling this very odd sensation under my left butt cheek. It was something I had never experienced before. It isn't really paintful, but more so annoying and very uncomfortable. I couldn't sleep well last night because of it. (Also, am I allowed to take tylenol at 4 weeks?) but any way, tonight I'm at work (3rd shift bleh) and I have this weird cramping uncomfortable feeling in the same exact spot. Is this related to the pregnancy (is that even possible at 4 weeks??) or could it be something else?I will be speaking with my Dr. first thing Monday, but that's two days away and I'm concerned now.

Hmm. No idea. But update us when you find out, I'm curious.

Hope it goes away soon!

could be siatica (sp) a pinched nerve in your back pretty common during pregnancy  though 4 weeks is pretty early and yes tylenol is one of the few painkillers you can take during pregnancy

That was my thought as well, though it is a bit early for it.

Tylenol should be fine, but if the pain gets worse go to the ER.

How are you feeling today? Did the cramping go away or did you call the doctor?

The weird crampy pain in my lower left butt cheek has not come back. It only happened the two days. Now though when I wake up my lower abdomen feels as if I am having period-like cramps. I have not had any bleeding and everyone has told me that it's normal. I'm still going to speak with my dr. about it tomorrow.

Dr. said it might be sciatica, but I've also been having hip, thigh and butt pains and she said it's all completely normal. She said for first time pregnancies and especially women with small frames they seem to feel more pain due to the stretching of ligaments. She told me when I try to sleep to fold a cushiony blanket under my hip that's been bothering me and use a heating pad on a light setting. I have not had the butt pain though since Friday.
