I’m 8 weeks pregnant and have pain on my side & lower belly. Should I worry?


Round ligament pain is a discomfort that can be felt during pregnancy caused by a growing uterus and stretching ligaments that attach the uterus to different parts of the abdomen. You mentioned specifically that you’ve had some pain in the lower side of your abdomen, you’re wondering what it is. It’s really hard to say. The bottom line is if you have a persistent pain that is concerning to you or if you have cramping or bleeding it’s always best to contact your doctor as soon as possible. One possible explanation especially for one sided pain is round ligament pain. Like I said, as the uterus grows the ligaments that attach the uterus to different parts of the abdomen cause it to stretch just like a rubber band or an elastic. It’s usually associated with sudden changes in movement. Again, run it by your doctor and see what they have to think about it after checking you out and asking more specific questions. If you have any other questions for me though always feel free to ask them on our Facebook page and recommend us to your friends and family too.
