Hi. I am only about 4 1/2 weeks pregnant. Just took my home test 2 days ago, one day before my missed period. Today I am having right sided pain that feels like a really bad "stitch" in my side. The pain is not severe or overwhelming. I feel it is too early to be "stretching" as far as muscles/ligaments, but may be wrong. Has anyone else had this?

I know exactly what you are talking about. I started having that around 4-5 weeks in but I didn't know I was pregnant yet. It continued on until about 8 weeks when a felt this and every once in a while I still feel that now even though it is not as strong as it was.

Mention this to your doctor when you go for your appointment. I think it should be ok. I have read other posts of women asking the same thing. Everything is changing and starting to stretch in there.
As long as the pains aren't so strong that you can't stand them everything should be fine.

Just relax and try to take it easy.

It is probably just your ligaments stretching. It happened to me too. It will happpen to you again starting around the 5 or 6th month when the baby starts growing faster. No worries but still ask your Dr.

Hello

this could be very normal as every body else said. But if you start to having brown discharges, it is better to talk to your doc about it. Last month I got pregnant and I had pain in my right side. Actually I was unfortunate and didn't make that pregnancy. Because some time side pain is sign of ectopic pregnancy, which was for me, and I miscarried my baby in 5 week.

Most probably this is not the case most of the time, but it is good to be aware if you have either discharges or your hcg count is not as high as it should be.

Good luck

I too am having the right side pain. It''s painful enough that I am researching it, since this is my first time and I''d rather be safe than sorry. So this IS relatively normal for about 4 weeks? There''s nothing to worry about??
PS -- It''s hard to concentrate on anything else...

verynewtothis - I could have written this post!
I am 5 weeks, tho can't get my head round that as I know I only conceived 2 1/2 weeks ago!
I have constant stitch like aches on right and left side and keep freaking out abut ectopic pregnancies, so good to know others are feeling the same!
I cannot concentrate on anything - how are you now a few weeks further along?

Could I be pregnant
Hi first to this forum I am uncertain if I am pregnant yet, we have been trying, it is two weeks to my period but have been experiencing premenstrual cramps with distinct crampy feeling on the right sometimes left side, could this be an indication of pregnancy, the waiting is really getting to me now:-)

if you still have 2 weeks to go before your period, you may be experiencing cramps that can come with ovulation.

I'm getting a stitch like pain in my right side just under my ribs... I've had a scan 3 days ago and I'm 8 weeks pregnant. They said all was fine but I'm worried! It can't be an ectopic pregnancy because that would be noticed in the scan?

is it just my body changing?
I felt silly for worrying until I saw these posts! deffinately gonna be using this forum for the duration of my pregnancy! Smile
