I have had sever continuous cramps for 2 days now. It feels just like menstrual cramps. I am 18 weeks preg. My doctor said everything is OK unless I am spotting. But, I just have this bad feeling something is wrong. My cramps are really bad! Double over in pain bad. What do I do?
My neice is 23wks pregnant and was doubled over in pain this past Monday. She was having severe cramping in her abdomin and sometimes felt it in her lower back as well. It was especially hard for her to walk or go from sitting to standing position.
She went to the ER and guess what they told her??? They said she was having ROUND LIGAMENT PAIN. That is pain caused by the growing baby in your tummy.
Unless you are cramping with spotting (bright red blood) or passing clots, I wouldn't be too worried. But to comfort yourself, I would definately call your doctor or go to the ER. I hope it's just ROUND LIGAMENT PAIN!! Jodie
I'm really glad everything turned out okay. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this at eight or nine weeks. I had some pretty severe cramping on my left side last Friday. It was so bad it was making me nauseous. I thought it might just be gas and I didn't have any spotting, so I just rode it out. It was gone the next day. Is it possible to have ligament pain this early?
I think that every woman is different. I remember funny pains throughout my pg. I would talk to your dr about it on your next visit. Maybe your baby is growing extra fast!
Momofa4yrold, I'm glad your doing o.k. I was so happy to read that you are having round ligament pain also. I know that it's very painful. However, the pain is easier to tollerate when you know that the baby is o.k. Glad things are otherwise going well for you!
