I'm currently 11 weeks pregnant and ever since week 5ish whenever I cough or sneeze or move suddenly, I get a huge awful stabbing pain in my lower abdomen. Sometimes on the left, sometimes on the right. Only lasts a second or two but doesn't half scare the crap out of me when it happens.
I'm sure it's nothing to worry about and probably muscular with all the changes going on but just wondered if anyone has experienced this?
I'm 26+4 and had this from very early on, fortunately it seems to have eased in the last couple of weeks. I mentioned it to the midwife today and she said if it returns treat it with over the counter painkillers.
I get this at 20 weeks. Have done since about 7 weeks. It's mostly if I sneeze and don't brace myself. It's worst when I'm driving. Last week it was so painful that it made me go light headed and I thought I'd have to pull over!
