Ok, I need some advice (again). I promise I am not as neurotic as I seem. Last night while I was in bed I went to roll over onto my right side using my legs for momentum and had an excruciating pain that radiated from just right of my uterus all the way down my pelvis. The pain stopped as soon as I stopped trying to roll over and was on my back again. I experienced it again this morning when leaning over to put shoes on. I haven't had any bleeding or spotting. It doesn’t hurt to push on it either.
I am obviously paranoid that there is something wrong. If this was an ectopic pregnancy would that be a symptom or would it be too early to have symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy? Any other ideas what it could be? And should I seek medical attention for it?
I am crossing my fingers that it is just growing pains and I am just being a spas but 2 years and 30K later has made me kind of nutty!
Ok...my nurse just responded with the following and I feel MUCH better!!!
I had that pain too in early pregnancy, and I’ve definitely heard that complaint before. I think it’s relaxin combined with increased blood flow to the pelvis and the uterus and ovaries kind of shifting in new positions. I think it’s muscular/skeletal pain since it’s associated with particular movements. Ectopic pain tends to be sharper, not positional and not relieved by anything. I think if it increases in severity or duration you may want to become concerned. I want to reassure you about ectopic though, in my experience the beta levels start lower and don’t go up as well as yours did. Never say never of course though, so keep me posted on your concerns. I take all this seriously, please don’t think you are bothering me!
