Had the weirdest pain last night

I had the weirdest pain last night. It was on the right side, in my upper tummy near the top of my uterus. It felt like a cramp that just wouldn't unclench, but just a fairly small section of my belly (like maybe an inch or two in diameter), and it was even tender to the touch. It started while I was sitting there eating dinner, and went on through the night and even made it hard for me to sleep. At midnight I woke up because it still hurt, and like a dummy went downstairs and googled "Pregnancy pain in stomach" and found out it could be anything from the muscles separating and stretching to gallstones to a placental abruption, *swoon* I was seriously trying to decide if I should go to the ER, but it didn't hurt that bad, just really uncomfortable. I was all set to call my doctor this morning, but I woke up completely pain free. Weird. Has anyone had anything like that before?

I haven't experienced something that lasted THAT long, but I will say.. sometimes when I get a really painful RL pain, it seems to linger and I can't touch where the pain was because it's tender. But I haven't had it last for as long as you did. Hope everything is okay and glad you woke up pain free.

:lurk:

This happened to my best friend during her last pregnancy, she was told that her abdominal muscles had separated in the area affected by the pain. I do know that she didn't experience that pain right through to the end but can't remember how long she said it lasted, it was definitely a week or more. She attributed it to chasing her crazy 2 year old around, but the pain subsided when she finally realized that she needed to take it easy.

Oh - and...call your doc anyway! From what you've said about your doc, you've got one that actually listens to your concerns. It's ALWAYS better safe than sorry, yes?

Joan - My next appointment is on the 17th. I was considering still calling today, but everything is totally back to normal today, including no pain, I listened to the baby's HB and it was fine, I have been feeling him moving this morning (actually, he was also moving a ton last night when I was on my middle of the night googling spree, so I figured that was a fairly good sign.)

Jessica - That is something that I read about last night, how the muscles can separate especially in the late second and third trimesters. I am definitely going to take it easy for the next couple of days.

Too weird. Pregnancy is always an adventure, isn't it?
