I'm almost 9 weeks pregnant 3rd pregnancy..
since my 2nd pregnancy which didn't make it...I've been having pain or sensitivity along side my left pelvis when pressing on it or just coughing alone it's sensitive. it's been couple months now and it's constant. Some days i feel it more like there's a weird sensation like burning sometimes..not sure..but when I'm standing up..my left side looks more swollen then the right...i went to see doctors none seems worried. some say constipation..some say weakness in the abdominal wall...I had and trans-vaginal ultrasound and nothing came up no cyst nothing abnormal...now i think that it could be my sigmoid colon. now I'm afraid that it can interfere with pregnancy and causing another miscarriage...what could it be? and should i ask for a sigmoidoscopy?

  • I started hurting in my left side in Nov. 2009. I had a colonoscopy, ultrasound,regular and vaginal, and a ct scan and nothing. I finally got to the point that I had to have something done. I went to one dr and she told me that they had done everything they could, the next step would be to go to a surgeon and I did. On Dec. 29, 2010 I had exploratory surgery and he found some scar tissue on my sigmoid colon, a very small amount but I feel better than I have in a long time, pain free.
