Stomach feeling like its ripping open... (xp)

So while I was grocery shopping tonight my stomach started hurting pretty bad. Not a tummy ache, the pain was on the top left of my belly. The only way to describe it was as though the baby was trying to tear through my belly on the top... it was terrible. I had to sit down for a few minutes and finally it went away, but it really freaked me out. Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas as to what it is?

Oh, I am SO familiar with this. I get these terrible pains all the time. It feels like someone has ripped their hands in to my flesh and is tugging it apart.

Sad Take it easy and hopefully you aren't plagued by it again!

Are you drinking enough water? Dehydration could be irritating your uterus.

Thanks girls! It makes me feel better to know that I'm not the only one! I'm glad I know what it is now, so I'm not as worried about it.

Birth buddy, I do drink tons of water, especially on the days that I work!
