Pregnant and Sharp Pain on Right Side
I am 15 weeks and 1 day pregnant today.  All morning I've been having sharp pain in my uterus on the right side.  When I stretch it hurts.  Could it just be my uterus expanding?  It's not constant, it comes and goes.  I know that having twinges of pain is normal because of the body adjusting.  I just want to make sure that it's nothing I should worry about.  Plus, I'm feeling waves in my uterus, could that be the baby moving?  I heard it was like flutters and since I expected to feel the baby at about 16 weeks, I'm not sure if that is what I'm feeling.

could be the baby moving!! im 10 weeks and i get the right side sharp pain. when i roll over or get up too fast. i think its round ligament stretching. some get it for min. others might linger for a bit longer. unless you have bleeding or cramping i bet its just that!!! your baby is growing quite fast now, lots and lots of stretching going on .  i cant wait to feel my baby either!!!

Don't worry too much! this is a very common pain! I have this pain in 1st trimester too. RELAX and enjoy your pregnancy! The fun is about to start.
For the wave feeling, it's surly your little fish swimming inside you.
Have fun!! :o)

Thanks ladies.  That is a relief.  I'm so happy to hear that it is the baby moving.  What a great feeling.

Don't ya love those pains?! I'm still getting them at 26 weeks!! I think it's probably just more growing and stretching! :) You may be feeling the baby move! Mine never felt like flutters. It was more of a tapping or like you said a "wave".

I'm 10 wks, and keep having the same pain/cramps since conception.  It just comes and goes.  As long as there is no sharp constant cramping and bleeding you should be fine.

Good to know.  I had the pains once before when I was only like 7 weeks and I thought that something was wrong.  The pain is gone now.  Who ever thought pregnancy is painless.

Your are experiening 'round ligament pain'.  The ligaments that hold the uterus are stretching their arms to accomodate the growing uterus.  These are usually described as sharp quick pains that are primarily on the rt side.
NORMAL.

Im 24 weeks pregnant and still have those pains. I even went to the hospital when I was 12 weeks because I thought it might be my appendix. They said it wasn't and to this day I still worry that it might be..... I hope this helps.... but to me I really haven't been able to enjoy this pregnancy (my first one was the best- no pain no nothing) due to heartburn and these pains

This is strange to see my old post...lol.  It's totally normal.  I know that now after gone through it.  It was and is round ligament pain.  It happens all throughout the pregnancy when your uterus expands.  Congrats.
