Im thinking a lot everyday if im having ectopic pregnancy and im having lower right side pain in abdomen.I also feel dizzy.But negative.Can be anxiety?

Yes, it sounds like: Anxiety. You are not concerned about normal pregnancy, but a variation, an ectopic, despite having a negative pregnancy test. The pain the the abdomen may be a few things but not uncommon. See your doc. Stress or mood disorders cause poor sleep, low energy and pain without a physical cause. Consider a psychiatrist if available, not because you r crazy but 4 best meds if needed, good luck. ...Read more

Had tubes tide burned and clipped in 2008. Haven't started my period,took home pregnancy test neg. Also having right side pain. What does this mean?

Could be: Could be anovulatory cycle - meaning you didn't ovulate - or a late ovulation. If your periods are not regular, it might be worth doing a pregnancy test again to be sure. If you are usually regular and the hPT is still negative, check with a doctor if the next period is missed too. Sometimes a period can be missed due to a persistent cyst from the cycle before, again a doctor can help. ...Read more

Had back&side pain (left), abdominal&hip pain. All since had c section 13 weeks ago, could it be related to pregnancy or recovering?

Had back&side pain (left), abdominal&hip pain. All since had c section 13 weeks ago, could it be related to pregnancy or recovering?

That is odd: Continued pain as you described is of some concern. You may have scar tissue. There may be some injury to the ureter (the tune from the kidney tintype bladder) which may explain the left-sided back pain though this is not that common in C-sections. Finally, it may be chronic back issues or positional problems even nerve stretching or injuries from the procedure itself though less likely. ...Read more

Is rib pain abnormal in week 26-27 of pregnancy? My ob said that i shouldn't feel uncomfortable from everything moving up until around 32 weeks.

Is rib pain abnormal in week 26-27 of pregnancy? My ob said that i shouldn't feel uncomfortable from everything moving up until around 32 weeks.

Yes: Rib pain can definitely happen in the 2nd trimester. Every pregnancy is different so hard to say that something shouldn't happen until a certain time. Position of baby and activity of baby, as well as mom's anatomy can have lots of effects. Imagine a woman who is 5'10" tall at 27 weeks of pregnancy, and then a woman who is 5' 2". The length of their torsos varies and thus so would rib pain. ...Read more
