round ligament, braxton hicks, or something serious?!?!?!

nreyn3 posted:
Im 21 weeks, baby's measuring 5 days ahead of me and I have been having dull pains on the left side of my lower abdomen. It has been going on for about 3 hours now. If I cough, sneeze and what not it intensifies for a couple seconds, but the dull ache is sticking around. The baby is still moving around like normal (i have limited feeling because my placenta attatched to the front of my uterus), but I felt her within the last 10 minutes. Could this just be the stretching of my round ligament still? I did read braxton hicks can start as early as the second trimester. Should I call my doctors office, go to the er or what?! This is my first baby so I might be overreacting... any input would be appreciated!!
