Girls, been feeling this all day since I woke up but it's getting slightly worse, I think. I have a dull pain, almost like a tight clamp being placed on me, in my bump area, especially close to the bottom. It's not at all like a period pain and doesn't come and go - it's just constant. Is this similar to what any of you experienced?
hey there, haven't had that, but maybe it's just your uterus streching... I have read that can cause a bit of pain.
Don't be worried anyway, thats the main thing.
maybe put a call into your doc to put your mind at ease, they can reassure you in a minute.
Hi sunsparks, think our dates a pretty similar. I have been having cramp like pains for the past few days. Mine are much higher up, above belly button but are on and off..... I was putting them down to baby growing pains?!?!?
Thanks girls - that's what I'm thinking re growing pains.
Not gonna worry too much as have now had 3 scans showing a healthy bean so unless there's bleeding, I'm gonna put it down to that.
(at least that's the theory - my mind has a life of its own!)
I sometimes get a dull ache in the lower abdomen, particularly on the left-hand side, and it was just stretching pains.
I think that unless it's very severe and / or accompanied by bleeding, you're fine.
Mine used to last about 2 days and then vanish. Hope it eases soon.
I get this pinching sensation from time to time. The other night I yelled at the baby to stop it!! It hurts though but I don't worry about it at all! Just below my bikini line. If I raise my arms sometimes I get a pulling sensation in a line right down the middle of my torso to the top of the bump. Oh all the pains I tell ya!
I get this really sharp stabbing pain if I turn to get up while sitting - it really hurts - like a stitch!
Hope our little beans know all that they put us through!!
I also have such a bad pain all day !!!! It's mainly on my left side... really tight dull pain. My belly is also very bloated and i feel like my food isnt digesting properly.
I asked my gp about these pains on Tues and she said its just stretching pains, just goes with the territory unfortunately!
