IObama have a pain on my left side which feels like a stitch. It's been there since last night and was really sore last night whenever I rolled over.
I'm 7-8 weeks pregnant. Should I worry? I have mw tomorrow anyway so will mention it but I just wondered if anyone here could enlighten me?
I have no idea why it says Obama!

I love predictive text!! Sounds like its probably stetching ligament pains but definitely mention it to your mw tomorrow x

I had stitch-like pains in my pregnancies. It's due to the uterus growing and stretching. If you're worried, do call/tell your MW. x

Thanks ladies. I panic at any pain on my left side as I only have 1 ovary and Fallopian tube and they are on the left.
I think by 7 weeks the embryo is implanted in the uterus already, isn't it? So not still in the Fallopian tube?
I have a higher chance of ectopic so pains worry me!

If you are worried a call to the mat hosp wont do any harm x

It's not majorly sore, more uncomfortable. Guessing if it was anything sinister it would be properly painful x

By 7 weeks you would be in unbearable agony and probably have a ruptured tube if it was ectopic. I’m pretty certain it won’t be that.
The pains can be very scary but also quite normal. Try not to worry too much and take it easy x

Thanks OB. That's what my sensible head is saying!

I've had this quite a lot all the way through, the MW called it 'round ligament pain' where its all stretching and moving. I get it for a few days here and there and then it goes. No harm in mentioning it though.

I had this last pregnancy and this time round. I just put it down to stretching pains. I phoned the hospital this time when I was about 15 weeks as I was in agony with it and crying in pain and they weren't concerned in the slightest lol
Def mention it tomorrow though to the MW

Thanks ladies. I will do x

LR - is this your first pregnancy? The only reason I ask is that pains are worse in subsequent pregnancies (so I've heard and experienced) x
