    i keep getting a really bad shooting pain in the left side of my lower tummy, i guess its kind if where the baby would be.

    I have never had this with my last 2 pregnanys, so im not sure if its anything to worry about, or wether its "growing" pains?

    has anyone had anything like this, should i call the doc/midwife?

    Hi Layla

    I had those too. I think if they're sharp sudden pains that only last a moment then it's probably just the uterus stretching - Rounded ligaments I believe is the technical term.

    Mine used to come on after a sudden movement - e.g. getting in or out of car or doing something physical. They seemed to have died down now but I'm sure they'll be back.

    I'm 15 weeks by the way.

    Phone your midwife if you're still worried and put your mind at ease.

    i get the pains the same as when happy says, even if i sneeze, i end up sat there going "oooo"
    but if it gets worse i'd ring and speak to someone, even if its just out of your own curiousity, they'd rather a pregnant woman happy that she's ok!!
    (thats what they told me at the hospital!)

    I turned in bed last night and got a terrible one, so you have my full sympathy. I also got bad ones in the bath a couple of days ago.

    I've been getting really bad shooting pains down the side of my breast, it really hurts!
