pain in my left side, at 10 wks pregnant
bluebutterflies1980 posted:
I'm 29 yrs. old, this is not my first child, but I am worried. I had a miscarriage in Sept. of 2008, and this is the first pregnancy since then. I am 10 weeks pregnant and I am having pain in my left side, it feels almost like muscle cramps, and it comes and goes as it pleases. I'm not sure what to do....I have cut way down on soda, I have been drinking lots of juice, water, and milk....and I am watching closer what I eat, making sure to eat things that are good for me and the baby.

Give your doctor a call. I remember a similar pain during my second and third pregnancy and it being round ligament pain . You don't want to guess do give your doctor a call.

Did you see our Pregnancy Exchanges? Maybe one is just right for you or you could create your own due date related exchange.
