Need Reassurance About Spleen

Last month I had a CT scan which showed a spleen size of 12.2cm. (I had a FALSE-positive abominal aortic dissection). My hematologist is not concerned at all about the spleen size, but I have had recurrent, localized pain under my left ribs for 3-4 months. It is usually very pin-point specific to location, but anywhere around the rib area. Sometimes it is a rubbing pain on my left side. Only once has it been deep, once it was shooting, sometimes it feels like a muscle is cramping on the side.

I have been more constipated for a while though, so maybe it is this? What I basically want is an opinion if this could be spleen related. I am 5 weeks pregnant and don't want something terrible to flare up during pregnancy.

Thank you!
