5 weeks pregnant and sharp pain when sneezing
Hi all I was wondering if anyone could help me?
I'm currently 5 weeks pregnant and sneezed about an hour ago, but this was no normal sneeze I had a shooting sensation run down my lower abdomen, I screamed for about 5 seconds but the pain went shortly after, I'm really worried as I have had 3 previous miscarriages 2 at 6 weeks and 1 at 8 weeks, I do have an appointment with the midwife on monday morning, someone please help me xxx

You  most likely strained the ligaments that hold your uterus. As you progress in your pregnancy your uterus gets heavier.  I have had this happen as well more than once.  I currently am 17 weeks pregnant.

Ya that was happening to me in early pregnancy when I would sneeze I would bring my knees close to my chest to prevent the pain... I would also get the pain if I made sudden movements

Same thing has been happening to me. If I sneeze or move fast I get very sharp pain on my ovary. It is very painful for about 30 seconds.

Hello I had the same a few days ago.  Its not a pleasant feeling to say the least.  I am 5 weeks and 2 days now.  It's such a worrying time.  I have had my booking in appointment on Wednesday and don't have my next appointment until 9 weeks of pregnancy, then my scan around 12 weeks.  Feels like it such a wait!!!!

my cousin has actually had the same pain w both her pregnancies. It was caused from cysts. They're harmless though. And go away after she gives birth

I'm 4w5d and I do have minor/quick cramps also. They usually occur when I change positions, from sitting to standing, viceversa, and also in bed. The nurse told me the same thing about the ligaments of the uterus that are stretching.  Take care!
