I'm 10 weeks and 5 days pregnant. All day today I've been having stabbing pains. They're very sharp and uncomfortable. The first one was really intense to the point I doubled over. Then I'd have like this sharp twinge in my uterus a couple of times every 5 minutes. It's slowed down now but I still get the stabbing pains every once in awhile. Is this normal? Is this the ligaments stretching? (P.S. I am pretty small 115 pounds) I was told cuz I was small that it's my uterus stretching already but I think I need more reassurance.

I don't recall having those type of pains in my first trimester... I have some dull pains now but nothing bad. I agree with the others, you may want to call your Doctor.
