    Pains

    Ok ladies I have a question. I am now a little over 15 weeks pregnant and the last couple of days I have had some pains. They are mostly in my pelvic area but sometimes in my lower back. I dont think it is round ligament becuase it almost feel like period cramping. The pains are mild but consistant and throbbing. I called the doctor and they said it was normal, which it very well could be but I am nervous. What do you guys think?

    It could be round ligament pain or braxton hicks contractions, both of which are unfortunately uncomfortable yet normal. If you are still nervous about it or the pain continues to get worse call your doctor and see if they can move up your next appointment. It could also be the baby's position too.
