Sudden pain its all around my stomach down to my pelvis and really quite strong, having to walk/sit bent forward to stop it from being completely unbearable. Don't know how to describe the pain really just really strong almost like pinching from the inside. About 11 weeks pregnant. I think I need to phone my mW but don't want to waste her time if its going to turn out to be something incredibly stupid xxx

I had those pains around 10 weeks- was quite worrying but all passed after a while..had them on and off for a few days.. make sure you are hydrated, a dehydrated uterus can feel quite 'tight' apparently..

call your mw straight away.

There are many things it could be that are completely harmless and normal, but it is still sensible to get it checked out. No one will think you are silly or overreacting.

Pain so bad you have to hunch over to stop it from being unbearable sounds too much to me- can you get someone to give you a lift to your nearest EPU where they can check you over properly? (you can normally self refer if in pain)
I say that as I am just really aware of the time- don't want you to lose the opening hours for today on hold to midwife etc- you don't want to be in pain overnight x

probably round ligament pain but i think it's worth checking out. don't worry about bothering your midwife - that's what they're for.

Thank you for replying so fast. Was literally just about to phone and pain has eased up quite a bit so I am going to hold off but if it returns at all I will phone straight away. We have to phone the maternity assessment unit round here anyways so hopefully won't be hanging around! Thank you everyone xxx
