ACU...i remember when pg with dd (15 mth now) at around 5 weeks i had terrible sharp pains, and i was convinced i was going to miscarry, and at the time was out for a meal with lots of people who didnt know i was pg yet, i had to wait till i got home and ran up stair in tears convinced there would be blood....there wasnt, i worried over nothing and the rest of pg was fine, i do think it is fairly normal, only if you have blood loss should you be concerned.

I had ds two weeks ago and throughout the whole pregnancy I got sharp nasty pains that I never experienced with either of my other two, and like you I was worried but they never caused any problems and I still have no idea what they were from.

Like lilsmum said, if theres no bleeding then dont worry yourself...just take it easy and get plenty of rest for the rest of natures lovely little pregnancy side effects!!

Hi lilsmum thanks for that. I feel ok its just this pain niggling me. I can't explain it very well. i sort of feel pressure and heavyness on y right side but i keep getting sharp pain there too! Not like cramp or period pains.

p.s - I will have to look for your update when i get back from holiday about your test on monday, i am going away monday till friday but i am sending you loads of baby dust, i am pretty sure you will be with us

lilsmum Sat 14-May-05 23:47:04

lilsmum Sat 14-May-05 23:47:59

I've had that for all three pg's and was told it was implantation pain. It should only last a few days and then go. Always around this time. I also had brown spotting around the same time which wasn't anything to worry about. It's when it's red that you should get further advice. HTH and try and relax. Congratulations!

It could be a UTI (Unrinary Tract Infection). Try drinking some cranberry juice over the next couple of days which should help clear it up if it is a mild UTI.

If it goes on ask your GP or midwife.

Hi AngelCakeUmm, I had this and I got so worked up about it I arranged an appointment at the Early Pregnancy Unit at the hospital and they found that I had a cyst that was causing the pain, they aren't worried about it, they said it is a 'simple' cyst - I suffer PCOS anyway. I went for my 12 week scan (which was actually 13 weeks) and they found another one on the other side but the previous one had gone. They told me that the pains were also probably due to stretching and really not to worry about it!

Its known as round ligamnet pain and is just basically everything beginning to soften and relax in preparation of the long months ahead.
