Should pregnancy be this painful?

This is my first. Nearly 16 weeks. In constant twinging achey pain with at least 30 times a day - if not more - sharp searing pains. I woke up yesterday to an extreme shooting pain that seemed to travel up through my vaginal canal, through my cervix and into my womb. It lasted for about 15 seconds. At my scan they found a fibroid of 3cm. I keep checking for blood and irregular discharge - but nothing.

Should pregnancy be this painful? Any advice on how to stop it?

Would appreciate any learned opinions as this scared first timer is just that - scared.

This isn't something I've experienced in any of my pregnancies (pregnant with DC3 now). Have you asked your midwife about it?

Also, you may get more replies if you post your question in the Pregnancy topic.

Not due another meeting with the midwife for a week and a bit...

Disconcerting that you haven't experienced it.

Thanks for the posting advice. I shall repost.

Thank you x

Yeah. It can be very painful sometimes and totally depends upon the body type.
