Hi im nearly 9wks with my 3rd pregnancy..so far been a roller coaster as I started bleeding (more like brown discharge but i still paniked) that was last week (got a scan last Friday everything looked fine) then blood got worse on wed but kind of cleared up, back to browny discharge but still got another scan today, again everything looked fine! Ive came to learn how common bleeding can be in preg and coz ive had no pain its not so much something to worry about but Then tonight I got up off couch walked through to kitchen and I was getting a shooting/pulling pain (sorry for being graphic but it felt like it was going right up through my vagina, right to my belly button) it's no agony but defo sore and Uncomfy feels quite tight or something, hard to explain but defo not like a period cramp...anyone had experience of this? Obv I'm terrified of a MC with the blood and stuff, if anyone wouldnt mind sharing how that felt in comparison to pain I have the now?thanks

Sorry you've had all the worry of bleeding in early pregnancy but glad to hear all looks fine.

I am now 33 weeks pregnant with a healthy baby boy and vividly remember frequent pains like you're describing throughout the first and into second trimester.

There is so much changing and stretching going on so all those sensations are normal. You could speak to a midwife for reassurance and join the antenatal thread for your due date to share experiences with others at the same stage of pregnancy. Good luck X

I had similar pains and bleeding in early pregnancy too - now have a healthy baby boy. Hope all goes well for you

I was getting the pain exactly like you describe from about week 7 to 11 (didn't remember it with my first baby). It would only happen sometimes when I got up out of bed or off the sofa and was sharp and sore but only lasted a few seconds. I haven't had it for a while (although get a lot of pulling twinges still) and had a scan at 14 weeks and all well and healthy. Also heard HB last week and am 16 weeks now.
Best of luck, the early stages can be such a worrying time.

I believe it's called 'lightening crotch' - don't worry!
