I am currently 8 weeks pregnant. Last week I started noticing a strange area swelling up-it's a little pooch right above my pubic bone.I can see where I am already showing,but there is definitely a clear difference between my baby bump and this other area below it.I started to worry this morning when I noticed it was very sensitive and painful to the touch.As my stomach brushes up against things when lying down I can feel pain,and if I push down on the area it becomes a lot sharper and more intense.Looking at a diagram the best I could tell was that this was my blatter. I was just wondering if there is any cause to believe something serious is wrong and if I should maybe go to an emergency room? I have been waiting on my insurance to get settled and will be seeing a doctor for the first time this pregnancy next week. Would it be okay to wait until then?
According to the description of your symptoms It doesn't seem likely that there is something urgent in your case. It is normal to feel such symptoms because the womb is growing and presses the surrounding organs, including the bladder, during pregnancy. It seems that you can wait for one more week before visiting a gynecologist.
