Pain??? UPDATE on post #1

Ok, I will discuss with my mw tomorrow too but just wanted to hear your input. I've heard of RL pain and others where the pelvis is stretching, but I've researched and researched and haven't heard of anything like this. I get menstual like cramps when I'm lying down relaxing, mostly laying on my right side. They last for about 15 seconds. Theyre mostly in the middle below my belly button near my pelvic region. I can be relaxing then all of a sudden they just come on and go. Any one have experience with anything like this? I'm curious to hear what response you've gotten in the past. Thanks!

**Update**

It turns out the pains sound like contractions to my mw. She said to become concerned only if I get 4 in one hour. She actually said to rush into L&D if I get 4 in one hour. She also ran through the other possible signs of preterm labor but she made it a point to say we passed the milestone where the baby is vital after 24 weeks if born now (something I don't even want to hear about) Good thing is my BP was good and baby's HB was nice and strong. I was surprised by how much my uterus has gone up in the last three weeks. I actually have not gained anything according to her, I'm back at my starting weight but she is not concerned because baby is fine as far as size and is active. She wants me to schedule another u/s and an echocardiogram. She actually ordered me a 3D u/s because she said that would give the best view of the heart - yey! So I have to schedule those. Also I'm up for my GD test, I'm going to schedule that in the next two weeks. There's my little update. Thanks for reading!

My RL pains feel more like sharp twinges than menstrual cramps. Could they be contractions???

I don't know what contractions feel like so I have no idea Sad

I'll repost what my mw says tomorrow. I'm also going to ask her about numbness I'm having below my right shoulder blade on my back.

Thanks for the info. I know it's not RL pain but something different.

I know when I lay on my back the baby can make me feel really uncomfortable in a crampy way until either the baby moves or I move, but it goes away once that happens.

Are you feeling it in any order? Like every 10 minutes or something? Does it just come and go every once in a while? If you touch your tummy where it hurts does it feel hard and stretched?

Sounds like maybe some BH type contractions. Sometimes you don't notice them unless you are resting. Try some water and maybe some Tylenol.
