15 weeks and worried!!
mommycandace posted:

This is my 4th pregnancy but only one was successful. My other 2 m/c were around 11/12 weeks. Well im 15 weeks along with this one and started to bleed a few days ago, after a hospital trip and ultrasound they discovered i have placenta previa, which they say could possibly correct itself. Besides that the baby was active and fine and the bleeding was never explained and stopped. But today i have this constant pain in the lower right side of my stomach, ( its not unbearable, just uncomfortable) . Im just worried because i dont remember having a pain like this with my successful pregnancy and before i go making a big fuss i was just wondering if something like this could be common?? Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

During the fifteenth week of pregnancy and throughout the second trimester, most women tend to relax a bit more. Most of the worst pregnancy symptoms, like nausea, morning sickness, and fatigue, are decreasing more and more as the days go by. The pain that comes at the end of the pregnancy is far off, so you can finally sit back and enjoy the fact that you are pregnant. The fifteenth week of pregnancy does not herald significant changes within your body. Many women have gained up to five pounds by this week, although weight gain varies from mom to mom. It is quite natural if you have gained a little more or a little less than that. The toughest situation moms-to-be face during this week is that the ligaments that support the uterus are continuing to grow, causing sharp pain in the abdomen.
