Electric sensation

For the past few days I've felt like an electric shock sometimes that runs down my stomach but mainly in my groin and pubic area. It comes and goes quickly, not extremely painful but enough to know its happening and the only way to describe it is like an electric sensation. I go to my doctor in the morning for my 13wk apt so I'll be sure to mention this but has anyone felt this weird sensation?

Re: Electric sensation

I totally get this sensation sometimes. I bet it has to do with your nerve endings. Any time there is an electrical sensation it usually means nerves. Always good to check with doc though when you go.Courtney

Re: Electric sensation

I've had the same thing. My dr told me that it is just the nerves adjusting to the stretching.

Re: Electric sensation

I get it too and glad to know I'm not the only one. Only I started getting it a couple of months ago, I'm now 35 weeks. I also had it with my first pregnancy

Re: Electric sensation

thanks ladies!
you're right, doctor says its totally normal and has something to do with my nerve endings. the uterus is now pushing on my nerves in my stomach and its nothing to worry about even though its uncomfortable.
