Sharp Pain On Left Side

Lacey - May 3

I am 21 weeks pregnant with my first. A week ago when I was doing dishes I got this pain in my lower left side of my belly. I went and lied down and dozed off for 30 minutes, all of the sudden I woke up in really bad pain. It hurt so bad I was sweating. It felt a lot like bad af cramps. My grandpa is a dr. and he came over and said the baby was fine and if the pain did not leave in an hour to go to the ER. After on hour it just all left. Than a few nights later I woke up in the middle of the night with a REALLY sharp pain in my left side. It hurt sooooooooooo bad. My lower back also hurt really bad. It lasted about 1 1/2 hours than went way. Does any one know what this could be or mean? Should I be worried about it or is it normal?

If the pain was so sharp, I would go and check it with a doctor. Better be safe than sorry..but that's just me...

Lacey: Sometimes women get sharp pains when they're pregnant due to ligaments and muscles stretching to fit the baby. I am 24 weeks pregnant and I have had a few instances of experiencing some really sharp pains.....but they only lasted for a few seconds. So, it may be a good idea to speak with your doctor. Also, there is a possibility it could be Braxton Hicks contractions. I would definitely ask.

What jess1980 said is exactly what i think.

I had some sharp pain on and off for a few days. I went to the doctor about it- they said the baby was kicking something that hurt. I know that sounds lame, but it was REALLY painful. It has happened twice and lasted 4-5 days off and on each time. I couldn't sleep very well or eat much ,but now I can't remember exactly what it was like. I would check with the doc, but don't worry too much.
