Abdominal "pains"

Have any of you ladies experienced any minor abdominal pains? It's not cramping -- just a short jab on either right or left side of my lower belly. It's been going on for several weeks, and I thought today that it might be stretching pains -- that's what they sound like -- but when I "googled" it they said those pains start in the 2nd tri ... I'm laying in my bed right now and am having sporatic pains in my left side.

I have my first appointment tomorrow (and ultrasound!!) so if the baby is still kickin' ... I'll probably ask him.

It sounds like round ligament pain starting a little early:

That's what I figured too -- but it seemed early. Maybe I have 5 growing inside of me! Then I can have my own TLC show Smile hehe

I get that pain when I cough. It freaks DH out when I grab my side and say "Ow!" But I think it's normal.

I get pain when I cough or get up too quickly from sitting down. It started a couple weeks ago for me....so before 2nd trimester

I have been having lots of the round ligament pain too. I asked my Dr. and he said the third time around expect everything to happen a lot sooner than it did with the first two pregnancies.

Round ligament pain starts earlier and earlier each time for me and my doc said that is pretty normal! Your body has done this before so it is already stretching and doing what it knows to do Smile

I get a sharp pain in my left side when I sneeze or cough but then it goes away. Sounds normal.

Once again I'm late to the party (because I have been posting I agree to everything on the board this afternoon) but once again I totally agree. I'm actually happy that I'm not having the super painful stretching, yet.
