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.

You need to phone your midwife. With the best will in the world, strangers on the Internet can't tell you if you need to be worried. Get yourself checked out properly. Good luck x

Pregnancy is potentially painful, fibroids can be horrendous, but you need to speak to your midwife if concerned

I had fibroids too, one up to 8cm- they grew as pregnancy progressed and they outstripped the blood supply causing extreme pain. I was admitted. Degenerating fibroids are more painful than labour. Call your midwife/ obstetrician
