cross-posted from HB 🙂
The past 2 weeks or so, I’ve been having stabby-type pains in my cervix (area..I think!). I googled and people have stated that is ‘growing pains’ or baby kicking.
Well, I can’t feel the baby yet, but at my 16 week ultrasound – she was VERY low. As in, camped out on my cervix. Could I already be feeling the pain of activity down there, even though I can’t feel her yet?
Or is this just growing pains – or something worth calling the ob about?

Sounds like it could be round ligament pain and/ or your uterus expanding (or any of the other multitude of happenings that can make you uncomfortable/feel pain). You’re probably just fine, but if the pain continues, you have any spotting, or notice any leaking, definitely call the ob/nurse. Better to be safe . . . and if you’re still just unsure, call. They definitely don’t mind, and peace of mind is good for you and your butterbean. 🙂

completly normal 🙂 i was worried when i expeierenced them too, it freaked me out. i use to get this too in my cervix area, kinda like shooting/stabbing pains that came off and on. happened around 14 weeks and i think lasted a couple weeks (Sporatically). docotr said all the actviity i felt was uterus growing/ round ligment pain.

@sorrycharlie: that sounds normal to me. I am at 13w1d and I feel the same. My babe is super low…I’ve addressed it with my OB and she told me it’s because I’m so constipated these days (Sorry TMI). But guess what my thing is? It’s better than than sorry. So why not just call the doc & see what kind of input you get?

I agree that it could be round ligament pain. It could also be pressure from where the baby is camping out. I’m a bit farther along and am feeling lots of movement, but I have noticed that when I go for walks Baby T likes to hang out at the bottom of my uterus and press down, which makes it feel like I have a constant side ache, that stretches all the way across my stomach :(. I don’t think it’s anything to worry about, sounds like normal pregnancy discomfort to me.

thank you guys! I’ve noticed it’s only sporadically at night, and isn’t constant, so if it gets ‘horrible’ this week I’ll call my doctor. good to know sometimes that all these little weird parts of pregnancy are pretty normal!
