8 weeks pregnant and Im feeling a thick and pulling sensation from the lower left abdomen down to my left leg. What is that?

8 weeks pregnant and Im feeling a thick and pulling sensation from the lower left abdomen down to my left leg. What is that?

8 Wks pregnant: At eight weeks of pregnancy, the combined weight and size of the pregnant uterus is sufficient to cause this "pulling sensation" if the position of the uterus in the abdomen is "tilted back" and now resting on the "backbone". As the pregnancy progresses past 16 weeks, it will be pushed forward and that sensation will probably vanish. ...Read more

Expanding abdomen. 7 mths.All pregnancy symptoms. Feel what seems to be fetal prts head, back legs.  See and feel strong movements. Neg. Preg. Test.?

Psychological: First, as a physician I am going to speak very frankly to you. If you are seven months pregnant and not seeing an obstetrician then this choice is putting your life and the baby's life at risk. In this day and time where obstetrics can save women and baby's from most of the common problems that plague pregnancy makes not seeing an OB nearly a crime. Second, if you doubt the test go see an ob. ...Read more

I'm 30 weeks pregnant and have sharp pain in my lower abdomen when I move or pick up my legs ?

Pregnancy pain: At 30 weeks of pregnancy, the presenting part of the fetus is much larger, and is pressing on the bladder, so with your movement or that of the fetus, a mid-line lower pain is not unusual. If this persists, see your obstetric provider for reassurance and advice. ...Read more

What could cause blue veins on my abdomen and legs to be suddenly visible? I've had 2 negative pregnancy tests and have never missed a bc pill

Not concerning.: The prominence of veins through the skin is affected by many factors including levels of hydration, hormones, body temperature as well as outside temperature, medications and even levels of stress. Fair skinned people tend to have more easily visible veins than darker individuals and hereditary plays a strong role also. In a healthy person, visible veins are usually not of any concern. ...Read more

I'm 8weeks pregnant. i was prescribed low dose aspirin by my doctor. i feel pain in my lower abdomen down to legs soon after taking it, is it normal?

Aspirin: pain: Pain immediately after taking low dose aspirin is probably not caused by the aspirin. At eight weeks of pregnancy, the womb will be growing and cramps can be the result. If the pain persists, get an ultrasound to make certain the pregnancy is doing well. Your health care professional will examine you for other causes of the pain as well. ...Read more

I am 20 weeks pregnant and my stomach is always sore, can't find a comfortable position to sit or sleep...pressure pains goes down to my left leg &hip?

It happens!: Discomfort due to growing fetus is very normal and to be expected. You should do a trial of a pregnancy belt and try using pillows to support your abdomen and upper leg while sleeping. Try stretching exercises for your back, hips and legs. You may get a massage and take warm soaks in the tub. Of course, this is all AFTER you have seen your doctor for prenatal care and know that all is well. ...Read more

Dull coming and going pain in lower right stomach and hurts when stretched and dull numbing pain in right leg that comes and go and 16 weeks pregnant.

Round ligament: The round ligaments are on the sides of the uterus and are stretched as the uterus grows. This stretching of the ligament can cause pain especially when you move. This is a common complaint during pregnancy. The high progesterone levels of pregnancy also make joints less stable and in your back this can cause some pressure on or stretching of nerves resulting in pains or numbness that come and go ...Read more
