Yesterday I bent over to pick something up and I got a strange pinching sensation in my stomach, right below my belly button. I noticed a few other times during the night, and when I slept a few times. Is this something to be worried about, or is it just normal growing pains? I am 15 weeks, thanks in advance
Hi....i just got this feeling as well on the left side of my belly button.....i'm only 6 weeks! feels almost like a pulling sensation. had my first ob appt today and brought this up. he said it's normal....and when he did the ultrasound (i was surprised that they would be able to see anything this early) that's exactly where the uterus and sac were! So....all if to be expected. Does it kind of hurt or ache to touch the area too?
I go back in two weeks to see how the 'lima bean' is progressing..by then, the 8 weeks will be here hopefully there WILL be progression and the rate of miscarriage drops below 3%! I'm just nervous now...hearing the doc go over official numbers and rates of things.....i knew in the back of my head that i'm still early and that there always is the chance of something happening in the first 8 weeks, but it really hit me when i heard the words come out of his mouth! 20% chance before 8 weeks.....but on the good side, which is how he wants me to look at it....80% do NOT miscarry!
