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.
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.

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?
