Achy lower tum

Hi all
I know there have been a few threads similar to this but I am feeling a bit worried. For the last couple of days, I have had an achy, almost AFy type feeling low down in my tummy. I am 19 weeks so its another week til my next scan. I haven't really had these before, just a day here and there and it went away. I do have a very achy lower back too especially when trying to haul myself back up after sitting or lying.
I haven't felt any movement yet I don't think and my bump is quite small. All was well at 16 weeks and 5 days.
Do I need to get these pains checked out or is it normal? I've read about round ligament pain but I'm not sure what that should feel like. I feel a bit silly being so worried but I'll be devastated if anything goes wrong now.
Any advice would be great.

Hey Dizzyduck,

I had similar feeling to what you describe around 16-18 weeks and sharp pains (a bit like pulling a muscle) Turned out to be nothing- Dr diagnosed possible water infection and gave me Antibiotics but when my urine test came back negative I stopped taking them.

I'm sure it will amount to nothing but I know how much I worried so I would always say get them checked.

Best wishes,

If it helps you worry less (tho, of course talk to your midwife about it), I've been having this for weeks.....

Hello lovely. I know you're worried but I wouldn't think its much to worry about - probably just some stretching going on as your baby grows bigger.

HOWEVER, phone your midwife if you're concerned. If only to put your mind at rest.

DizzyD,
This week for the first time I had a real heaviness/dull ache in my lower tummy region. I'd never had this feeling so strongly before. And it did worry me - it almost made me not want to move.

I found that if I lay down, the ache disappeared. And if I got up quickly, it came back with avengeance. But if I got up slowly, as if I was a 90 year old man or something, I could keep the ache at bay. Is that the same for you? ?(

I decided it was the whole ligament stretching thing. Especially as my bump seemed to grow a bit more afterwards. But always talk to your midwife if you are concerned.

I had something similar to this at about 17 weeks and was told by my consultant that it was all normal and nothing to worry about, but as the other girls are saying, speak to your midwife if you are worried.

Thanks for all the advice. I don't really have a midwife - I just saw one at the hospital for booking in and they said it won't always be her, so i have now changed to the community midwife at my GP but haven't had my first appointment there yet.
Mavis - this pain is a bit inconsistent - it does ache when I'm lying or sitting down but sometimes goes off a bit when I am moving about and then again sometimes it's the other way round. It's not bad enough to take a painkiller or anything and there is no blood so I'm hoping it will be OK. If it is still there tomorrow I'll send the miscarriage consultant who has been seeing me an email and see what she thinks.
It is really reassuring to hear that some of you are having the same sort of thing and its fine. I weighed myself on the wii fit today and I have gained 8 lb in the last 3 weeks so even though my bump is small I must be growing - maybe that does account for the aches as it all stretches and shifts about.
Thanks again for sharing your stories - I don't know what I'd do without you!

Thanks Rosebud - we're very close in dates I think so it's good to go through this together. I never stop worrying either! I did email the miscarriage consultant and she said pretty much the same as all of you and not to worry.
Paris - I do feel a bit better today as I've been to the loo a few times (TMI!) and now the pains have eased up a bit. I think as my 20 week scan approaches I'm just becoming anxious about everything again. Only 6 more days to wait until I can find out if everything is still OK.

Hi all

Well I have really bad trapped wind now and the runs sorry TMI! I have IBS so I am prone to this and my mw said its not usually anything to worry about but the wind can be so painful and it stops me noticing the LO moving as much!

Hope you feeling better today DizzD and it is nice having someone around the same time, when's your due date? xx
