I'm pregnant and use the bathroom standing up when I finished and turned after wiping I felt stabing feeling on my leftside of abdomen why?

I'm pregnant and use the bathroom standing up when I finished and turned after wiping I felt stabing feeling on my leftside of abdomen why?

Ligaments: Often times when one feels this stabbing or pulling sensation in pregnancy, it's due to ligaments from the uterus that are stretching. It can be super painful, and alarming too, because the pain can come out of nowhere, but typically it resolves after a few minutes, even if you may need to lie down to do so. Don't worry, you haven't hurt anything. A warm bath can always help too. Good luck!

I want to know if I can feel if im pregnant or not by feeling my abdomen and how I can balance out my hormones as last year they were un balanced?

Feeling your: Abdomen is not a reliable way to detect pregnancy until very late when it's quite obvious. I don't know what you mean about balanced and unbalanced hormones, there are thousands of different hormones and "balanced/unbalanced" are lay terms not medical ones. Check w/your doctor.

I'm currently 115 pds and just found out I'm pregnant. I look bloated but wondering what week will my abdomen start feeling hard? I'm showing already

I'm currently 115 pds and just found out I'm pregnant. I look bloated but wondering what week will my abdomen start feeling hard? I'm showing already

Thin preggos!: JeanineH-first, Congratulations! Generally the uterus is at the belly button at 20 weeks, so this is when your belly will start "feeling harder". Your having bloating right now from all of the hormones you are secreting. When you are ready to have your baby, your uterus sits right under your breastbone. That's when your belly feels really hard! Good luck!

I'm almost 5months pregnant, sometimes I have this feeling of cramps in my abdominal area, what is it? Should I be worry?

Common: Most pregnant patients complain of cramps off and on. This is a side effect if growing a human inside your body. Of course you should see your doctor for an exam to make sure all is normal. You want to make sure there are no sign of preterm labor.

Is pulling/stretching feeling in lower right abdomen/overy a sign or early pregnancy symptoms? And sometimes occassionally on the left side?

Is pulling/stretching feeling in lower right abdomen/overy a sign or early pregnancy symptoms? And sometimes occassionally on the left side?

Normal and common: I'm afraid it's too common to be specific: in other words, can't say it's good or bad - but it is normal. The only reliable pregnancy sign before a missed period is a positive test. Best of luck next few days!

Painful pinching feeling in lower abdominal 14 weeks pregnant. What is this?

Painful pinching feeling in lower abdominal 14 weeks pregnant. What is this?

Pain: Around 14 weeks your uterus squeezes its way out of your pelvis and into your abdominal cavity. Sometimes this will cause pain. However, I can rule out a urinary tract infection.

What could cause a hard painfull popping feeling in my abdomen at 27 weeks pregnant?

Round ligament pain: Depending on the location you may be feeling some round ligament pain which would be located just above the groin area. Heat, tylenol (acetaminophen) and rest usually take care of it. You may want to see your doctor if it last more than 24 hr.

I am pregnant and I am feeling pain under my left rib cage and abdominal area? What could this mean?

I am pregnant and I am feeling pain under my left rib cage and abdominal area? What could this mean?

Could be baby: Pain under the ribs and/or in the upper abdominal region sometimes can be due to a fetal extremity or even the head (if breech). It could also be costochondritis (inflammation along ribs and sternum). Typically these various aches and pains in pregnancy have little clinical meaning. If, however, the pain worsens over time consult with your doctor.
