crampy / pulled muscle feeling in abdomen? Punkerella-nips of steel! 1 child; Cortland, New York 10891 posts

Ok this may be a dumb question...but I really don't know about this one so...
All day today I've had a constant bad cramp ..that almost feels like a pulled muscle in one side of my lower abdomen..and I've had some bad low back pain...
I'm just wondering if it's something that I should be concerned about ..and should I call my OBGYN ..or is this just normal pregnancy stuff...???

I get a bad cramp in my abs when i get up to fast sometimes. Are you maybe doing something strenuous or getting up to fast? It hurts like a b$*# when it happens.

Just curious...
Didn't you post earlier about having constant pains like in your back or lower abdomen or something?



If not then call the doc and get an opinion
If so head to L&D

i forgot to add that it gets worse the more I move around ..but never goes away completely ...
I just want to get some feed back from you ladies because it's after 2 am here and I don't want to call my OB if it isn't important...

Do you feel any kind of tightness in your lower back?

When I was 28 weeks I had horrible cramping, so bad that I layed on the couch and cried for hours. The nurse told me I was constipated and to drink prune juice (gross and bad idea!).. Well, I wasn't constipated and started peeing blood.. I had kidney stones and a kidney infection.
When you go to the bathroom see if your pee is kind of cloudy looking.. I know it's weird but mine was because there was a lot of protein it.
