    hi guys.

    the last couple of days i've had an aching pain in my right side, feels around where my kidney would be. it seems to hae gotten worse, i was sleeping there and it's woken me up, it's agony :cry:

    it feels like the pain you get when you hold a pee in too long, except my bladder is empty :cry: it's excruciating :cry:

    any ideas on what to do, or what it could be?

    Could be a kidney infection? I reckon if that's what it is they'll tell you to drink loads of cranberry juice!

    Always worth getting it checked out if it's causing you hassle xxx

    i think the pain had gotten worse because i'd been sleeping and needed to pee, it was a shocking pain, like absolute agony, thought i was going to be sick :cry:

    it's not as bad now, i just had another pee, but it's not painful and there's no blood. funny thing is, it's only on my right side the pain :roll:

    i'll get some cranberry juice and i'm drinking lots of water just now.

    Not sure what it could be sorry :(

    Sometimes I get funny pains if I have been lying in one position too long.

    Poor you :hug:

    Is it worth mentioning this to your GP / midwife just to put your mind at rest? If it's worse than normal ligament pain it could be a kidney infection, although if your urine's been checked it seems unlikely.

    I had quite severe pain just like you on my right side as I was sleeping on 26/27 December (so I was 22 weeks) and I was convinced it was a kidney infection because I've had one before... anyway it went away so I think it's just your body doing a load of growing.

    Obviously if you're concerned speak to a medical professional though!!

    Best of luck and I hope you feel better soon :hug:

    thanks debecca :hug:

    it just puzzled me because i've never felt this pain before during my pregnancy, the only way i can really describe it is when your holding in a pee too long :rotfl: it's like an aching you get in your sides, but it was 100x worse :(

    it's dulled down a bit now though, fingers crossed, m/w knows and said to see GP next week if it's not away xxx

    How our you feeling to day sarah???????
    I hope the pains have gone!!!!!!
    Ive had them myself the other day i was in tears with the pain if i didnt have a bump id have been doubled over with it. I was pantting at one point :?
    But it was just my boy having a right good move around, every where HE moved he was shoving agianst my organs and stomach. I had the 21 week scan yesterday and baby is not only healthy he's a healthy size i am short so that equals more evident movements.
    Agian hope you feel better soon :hug:
