I got these pains, but much later on in my pregnancy, about 34 weeks onwards.

If you're concerned at all, speak to your GP/midwife.

I'm 13+1 and since 6 weeks I've had a few stabbing pains in the same area, though they only last a second and aren't intense. From reading this and other forums, even early on it seems fairly common to get these pains, but like mummaduke says, best to discuss with your healthcare team if you're worried. Hopefully it will be nothing though x

I had that about a similar time, now 30 wks and everything is fine. No idea what it was though, I think just something was stretching!

I believe that it's called "lightening crotch" (really!) and it's completely normal.

EDIT: No, it's called "Lightning crotch" sorry for the bizarre typo!!!

i just found your thread again Drewswife
i was feeling sooo bad. my Dh isn't here and im at my mom's. been having aweful aweful pain since twodays now. its my 17th week. i told my Dr. she said it is likely to increase now... as the uterus will expand more.
but i feel aweful. i cant sit, cant walk cant even sleep because of it:'(
i just keep getting angrier and angrier for dh for all the reasons possible...dont even feel like talking to him because he isnt here when he should be:'( (he's on business out of town)
i cant control my tears and i hate my job...its tiring and grrrr...everything is just horrid. and the pain wont go away in anyway

does anyone feel like this? i imaginrd my pregnancy being happy and thinking baby thoughts all the time...but now i am notsad

DrewsWife Fri 27-Jun-14 16:49:47

sara how are you today. im only getting them mildly now. so I assume I was stretching out.

sara87 Sun 29-Jun-14 15:06:45

hii...im much better now phew
Dr. said massage some oil over belly and the area that pains the most. however thankfully its okay now. probably stretching alot and emotions playung havoc.
thanks Drewswife
hope you are doing well too.
