This happened to me 5 times during my first trimester (once so bad, I thought I miscarried)...either call your Doctor or if you're like me and don't have one, go to the ER...even if it's nothing, you don't want to take the chance with a pregnancy...


call a doctor, no matter what stage. I recommend getting two opinions as well. I had this happen with my second pregnancy and my doctor told me it was nothing. Then one night at about 13 weeks I had to be rushed to the ER because I miscarried. I keep thinking that maybe if I got two opinions I might not have lost the baby because I may have been able to do something. It may be nothing is wrong, but if something is wrong it may not be too late to do something to fix it either.


Well if it is early on or in the middle then I would definitely call your doctor in case there is something going on. If it is late pregnancy or near your due date it may be your body getting ready for labor. You should keep an eye on the pain and see if their is a pattern, it may be the start of contractions.
