I'm 18 weeks pregnant and my sides hurt!! At first I thought it might have something to do with urine infection? But I'm not sure! They hurt! :(

In brief: Pregnant with pain

I think you should be checked if you are in significant pain.
It could be muscular, but it certainly could be a urinary tract infection, or something else. Increase your fluids and consider being seen.
