Post subject: Are pains normal??
I am 7 weeks 4 days pregnant, I have been fine apart from feeling very sick. I had a private dating scan last week as I had no ideas about dates and she confirmed that I was 6 weeks 4 days, she detected the heart beat which gave me peace of mind, however today i have had a pain low down on my left hand side, its not there all the time and I only notice it when I breathe right in or press on it , I suffer badly from IBS so I dont know if this is just another IBS pain or something I need to worry about, im sure ive had this pain before but dont know if Im talking myself into it now as never been pregnant before!!?, any ideas much appreciated!???

hi i know it is common to get slight caramps in the early stages of pregnancy
if u think about so much it will seem worse than wat it is i know it is hard not to worry though if u really concerned go and see your gp to put your mind at rest
good luck take care

I had such bad pains on my right and left side during the 14th - 16th weeks that I had to come home from work. I really panicked because I thought something was going horribly wrong but when I called the midwife she said they were round ligament pains and just to rest as in some people they can excruciating. I would definately say talk to your midwife about them as she really made me feel better and of course was able to rule out anything more worrying. Feel better
