Stabbing Pain in Left Side *Please Help* Proud Mommy o Pennsylvania 89 posts
21st Jan '13

I am 34 weeks Pregnant and I have this Stabbing/Dull pain in my Left Side, Like 3 inches from my belly Button and it comes and goes, But also if you press on that spot its VERY VERY Tender & Hurts. And its there also when im up and moving or Im just sitting and lean to the side it hurts. Its not to bad right now, its bearable but seems to be getting worse. It happened twice in my right side when it was happening in the left as well but its mainly in the left side. My belly seems to get alittle hard when it happens as well. He has been moving but not as much. Last time i was checked i was about 2cm dilated & 65% thinned, I have been having alot of preterm problems & having contractions with this pregnancie. But this pain is totally different then what i felt when i was having the contractions the last few time. My question is what could this pain be???? Has anyone had this before?? Thank You and please No Bashing

I used to get alot of pain (in my left side especially) 35weeks+ if I walked too much or if I did too much during the day. I think it's cause My belly was sooooo Massive and I'm so tiny. lol.
But if you've been having problems in the past with the pregnancy and you're concerned I'd give the midwife a call. xx

Could be round ligiment pains, a pulled muscle, BH, ect. If your really concerned with it I would go get checked, or atleast call and see what they think. It is always better to be safe.

you couldn't possible know where her placenta is, it attaches in a different spot all the time no pregnancy will have the same attachment spot.

How recent was your last episode of ptl? I have found that if I recently had ptl that the muscle (uterus) would get spasmy and just really hurt in various spots.

i got a bladder infection a few weeks ago and thats exactly how it felt. it was excruciating and there was no position i could be in to be without pain. i couldnt even sleep at night until the antibiotics started killing the infection. u should go to the doctor, they can tell by just taking a urine sample whether its a bladder infection and if thats what it is, trust me it wont go away on its own and u will want the antibiotics stat. hope u feel better!

I actually have that problem right now too. It's like sensitive to the touch in one spot. Idk what it is, I kinda just think it's because of all the stretching muscles. I have a doctor app tmrw and if it's still sore I'm going to ask my OB so I'll let you know what she says! haha.
