emergency or not?

Im currently 17 weeks pregnant and have been having this dull achy pain around my belly button and now on my right side of my abdomen for about 3 days now. No fever just the pain and alittle nausea here and there. Is this something I should goto ER for?

Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you to call my nurse (and not go to the ER).  My nurse could discuss your symptoms with you and decide whether or not you need to come in for and appointment sooner than your normally scheduled appointment.  Belly button pain is common and usually not serious--but you should call in.
Hope this helpd!

I would call and check if it's somEthing you need to come in for or not. Sounds like a few different things but could be ok.
