Re: 7 weeks & uterine contractions
I am 15 weeks and a few days ago had a cramping sensation that was a shooting pain in my abdomen. Since I didn't have any other associated symptoms, the nurse told me to wait it out and take a Tylenol and warm bath- she believed it to just be a muscle spasm. The ligament stretching is not as painful- just feels kind of sharp for a second. Either way, if it gets worse it may be something different- b/c in both cases, for me, the sensation didn't continue for long (although the ligament stretching will happen now and again). Anyway, it's always scary when you feel any degree of pain in that area, but it takes time I think to learn to gage the pain and determine what's normal and what's not... check with your dr. when you are in doubt.
