pains in lower abdomen

I'm about five weeks pregnant and have been having pains in my lower left abdomen. It was a dull, constant, pain for quite a few days. Now, it comes and goes and is very sharp sometimes.

Is this normal? Has anyone experienced this?

Re: pains in lower abdomen

I had the same pains you described right around my 7th week. The pains were so bad i was concerned I was having a miscarriage and went to the ER. The doctors checked everything out and it was fine they just looked at it as growing pains with organs moving around to make room the the uterus and things. If its unbearable or gets worse with time call your doctor or go to the ER. You can never be too cautious when you're thinking of your little one too.

Re: pains in lower abdomen

i dont remember if i had pains that early but i get them now at 26 wks and have for a while. its just your ligaments and uterus stretching. as long as your not bleeding i would think that you are fine. it would probably make you feel better though if you called the dr tomorrow and heard from him that it was normal. i know i always stress until i know for sure everything is ok. dont worry about bothering them i call almost every week. im sure they just cant wait for this baby to be born so they dont have to deal with me anymore

Re: pains in lower abdomen

when I was in my early pregnacy I had cramping too on my left side right around my ovary was so afraid I was miscarring again. So I called the dr and they let me come in. Had an utlrasound most it was growing pains but I had a cyst on my left ovary and they are very common in pregnacy. I was told that a cyst was a good sign. So this could be the reason you are hurting if your really worried call the dr maybe they will let you come in. I was also told that cramping was normal and if I wasn't bleeding that it would be fine.
Hope this helps some.
