First I need to explain that I am 11 weeks pregnant. So Two nights ago I went to the Emergency room because I have been having this terrible pain in my lower right abdomen for three days non stop. Not around my ovaries, and not around my hip bone, and no where near my uterus, it's more around where your appendix is. Also it radiates to the same identical place on my back and the only time it feels better is when i lay on my left side. It also hurts when I'm sitting down. After three hours of tests and an ultra sound of the baby and my appendix, the doctor says nothing serious is wrong and i'm free to go and then she prescribes Tylenol with codeine. Along with this I have been having a hard time urinating very much. Which I told her when she asked me of my symptoms. Her diagnosis? I'm probably confusing the pain with ligament pain that comes with pregnancy.I was furious but I contained myself., I'm pretty sure that CONSTANT SEVERE PAIN is not the same as the come and go annoying pain of my uterus and hips expanding. Then last night I woke up with SEVERE pain in my stomach around my belly button and in my lower abdomen above my uterus. It was so painful I was crying. After I vomited I felt a little better but mostly was still in pain. I layed out on the couch on my left side again which helped little but some none the less. I forgot to mention that I looked up my not being able to urinate much problem in the day time of yesterday. I found a site that said it might be your uterus and bladder fighting for room and gave some exercises to do that might help. AND THEY DID! But then this morning when I woke up I tried to pee and again barely anything. And my pain on my right side is still there and i feel helpless and scared. I don't want to die, and I don't want to lose my baby. This is my very first pregnancy. please help me. :confused:

  • I had the same problem. It was endometriosis. I could be wrong but it sounds EXACTLY like that I went through when I was pregnant with my son. IN labor I could only lay one way becuase it felt like it was pulling. Ultrasounds showed nothing but after he was out the problem was quite clear. It is important to have that checked out becuase if it is endometriosis it can cause serious secondary problems. Do some research and check it out, I could be very wrong but I think it hits too close to home to negate saying something. I wish you the best of luck. If you have other questions I will try to stay current with your posts.
