I'm 20 years old and about 12 weeks pregnant. For the past 2 days I've had pain in my lower left abdomen. It's just above my pelvic bone. It feels like something in there is swollen and if any pressure is applied or if I move wrong I get a strong almost sharp pain. My mom says she thinks a muscle or tendon in there has been pulled and it shouldn't be anything to worry about. But I still don't know. I haven't seen a doctor in forever. My medical card should be coming in a couple weeks and as soon as it does I'm going to the doctor but until then I have no way of seeing a doctor because eveyone wants alot of money up front and I currently am not working. I'm just wondering if anyone knows what it could be.

  • SOme ectopic pregnancy symptoms are: * Abdominal or pelvic pain* Dizziness or fainting. * Low blood pressure when bleeding is severe.* Vaginal bleedingThis is what another site said about the following symptoms:"If you are pregnant and have a long-lasting throbbing in one side of your lower abdomen or if you experience sudden pain you should contact your doctor. This is important because an ectopic pregnancy can be life-threatening if it ruptures and causes internal bleeding."You better saw a doc just for the piece of your mind.

  • Since it has been a while since your post I pray you have been able to go to the doctor. It really is your best bet! An ectopic pregnancy is the leading cause of maternal death in the first trimester! I know that money and insurance are an issue, but I know that at least around where I live there are free clinics and even some that are specifically for the uninsured and are christian based. Call the health department and they should be able to point you in the right direction.

  • I think it might be round ligament syndrome. If ectopic has been ruled out (which you would probably have vaginal bleeding as well) then I would suspect this. http://en.allexperts.com/q/ObGyn-Pregnancy-issues-1007/cramping-during-early-pregnancy.htm
