Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

pain in lower right abdomen... comes and goes... is this normal?

5 answers
I am only 6 weeks pregnant, but since week 2 I have had occasional pain in my lower right abdomen, almost in my hip. Sometimes you can feel a swollen knot there but I don't know what it is. I can't tell if its an inflamed muscle, or ovary... it usually flares for a day or 2 then subsidies, but twice it has been accompanied by very light spotting. Any advice?

My advice would be check with your doctor. It could be an ectopic pregnancy.I hope everything works out for you.

I hope all is well. I had and am having similar pains. I am 18 weeks and the doctor says it is my ligiments that connect the uterus to the body. Definietly get yourself in to see your doctor. Good Luck!
Well i have a sister and when she was about 5 to 6 weeks pregnant she had the exact same pain and she went to the doctor and they told her she had an infection and this infection she had could have also affect her baby! But luckly she was on time to treat it! So i suggest you go to the doctors! Hope this helped good luck! :)
Thanks so much for the advice. I've been a little concerned about an ectopic issue too. However, about 2 weeks ago I did go to the doctor, while I was spotting. I went to the walk-in clinic becuse I am not far enough along for the OBGYN to take me. The doc basically told me to just get some rest because until 20 weeks they can't do anything anyway. Bloodwork looked normal, but the pain still makes me nervous. I'm hoping its something more like the ligament issue! But again, thank you all very much.
