Long post! Just wondering if anyone has experienced something like this. I’m 30 weeks pregnant and was in labour ward last night due to really bad pains. Spd pain and tightening was accounted for but I’ve also been having a really bad sharp stabbing pain in my lower left side. Right below my bump. It happens randomly when I’m sitting, standing, moving, laying down. No position is helping. Midwife and doctors didn’t really know what it could be. It’s like I’m getting stabbed for a couple seconds sometimes longer then stops and can come back at any time. Was hoping that after resting last night when I got home it would be better today but I still have it. They said if it carry’s in no matter if I’m taking pain killers, relaxing, using hot water bottle and having a bath to go back in. I’m abit concerned as it’s still happening. Had a scan a week ago and everything was perfect. Urine test was fine last night. Bloods and vaginal swabs were also sent off last night. When the pain happens it takes my breath away for a couple seconds while it lasts. Baby was perfect and moving about fine today also. Just wondering if anyone else has had something like this and what it could be? Thanks!
Bruising? Inside from where baby has been kicking? (This was my Consultants answer to my random pain with dc5, I went with it because it was the only answer). Or pulled muscles from where you'll be moving differently due to spd & the bump?
I think if they told you to go back if you are still getting it then you should go back in. It's very difficult to identify the causes of all pains in pregnancy due to position of the uterus etc. But they may need to rule out anything serious including non pregnancy related things.
If it’s like my round ligament pain it takes my breath away. Happens when I move randomly very low down beneath my bump and catches me off guard. Didn’t have it in my first pregnancy have no idea why I’m having it in this one but it feels very much like being stabbed or ripped. Is awful. It might not be this of course but you have my sympathy for 1) being in pain and 2) not being sure of what it is. Pregnancy can be a stressful enough time without that. I hope it’s sorted for you soon OP
