Hello, ladies first I want to say if I don't reply to this right away it doesn't mean I won't be reading it soon. I don't have a computer at home yet because we just moved and am only at my work computer for a couple more hours. Anyway, I have been cramping way more than I remember with my 2 boys. It starts in my right lower side mostly and radiates through my lower stomach. Most of the time it is constant but I have gone a day or two where it didn't hurt much. What could this be? I have no bleeding or spotting just the pain and it is quite annoying. I know that the ligaments and muscles could be stretching but this just seems a little extreme to me. I seen the Dr. on Tues. and he said that everything looked good and scheduled me for an ultrasound but that appointment is not until Feb. 12th. I guess I am just nervous could someone put my mind at ease Please!!

I have been feeling the same thing, too. I too do not remember this from my previous pregnancy. It feels like mild menstrual cramps and it comes and goes. I also feel the sharp pain in both of my sides and lower back. I have not expereinced any spotting or bleeding. From what everyone tells me it is quite normal to have mild cramping. It is still a bit scary. I do not have my next appointment until Feb. 14th, it is nice to hear someone in the same boat.

I am sorry it has taken me so long to reply to you! I am still cramping mostly in my right side and it is concerning to me. I don't have a clue as to what it could be. I hope we are both ok. Before I was pregnant I would get ovulation pain in the same place so I am thinking maybe an ovarian cyst? How far along are you maura36? I am 9 weeks and 4 days today.

My doctor said that what seemed to me to feel like ovulation pain was probably only tenderness on the side where the baby got fertilized. I had an ultrasound at 7w3d and baby was definitely where he should be (in the uterus). I would try not to worry about too much unless it gets really painful--in that case, you should seek medical attention ASAP. Also be sure to ask your dr. about the pain next time you see him or her.

I know I shouldn't be worrying but that is easier said than done. I did tell him about the pain and that is what the ultrasound is for on the 12th but it is just along time to wait. He said it could be a cyst or a fibroid which I had with my last too, but I didn't have any pain then.
