Anyone had shoulder blade pain?

Hi Ladies,

Woke up this morning with an achy painful right shoulder blade. I know this can be a symptom of Ectopic Pregnancy, but have no bleeding, or pains in belly or lightheaded dizzyness?

I am wondering if I have laid on my shoulder funny when asleep or pulled a muscle as it only hurts when I cough, sneeze, breathe in really hard or move my arm outwards.

It doesn't hurt when I lay down or when I am sitting, and OH has rubbed it and that seems to ease the pain?

Anyone experienced Shoulder blade pain before during first few weeks of pregnancy?

It would be more of a constant stabbing. shooting pain that doesn't go away and it's would most likely be accompanied by painful cramps and/or bleeding. And it's suppose to be the left shoulder. I think you may have slept on it wrong.

Funny you mention this. One of my first symptoms of pregnancy around 4 weeks was upper back pain BETWEEN the shoulder blades. It lasted for about a week or so and haven't had it since. It didn't accompany any bleeding, just the pain itself.

I had shoulder/shoulder blade pains in week 5. I actually had pains all over the place. Back, arms, legs, ribs. I still get them.
I was so worried about ectopic because I had all the symptoms minus the bleeding but I had a 6 week ultrasound and everything turned out to be fine.

Hi, I'm 33 weeks pregnant. The pain has come back after going away early Second Trimester. I'm not bleeding or anything, but I did notice it happens a lot when I fold clothes or do the dishes. I have it at the momebt. It's 6:32 PM here. It's been hurting since about 3:20 PM.
