Pain in lower left abdomen..


Ladies,
I am back with another paranoid question.

Since last night I have been having a dull pain sometimes twitching in my lower left abdomen. Is this normal? :--( I slept normally, and when I woke up the pain was still there.

I got the blood work results. Levels are normal it seems and the docs has asked me to come for a sono in 2-3 weeks. However I did tell the nurse about my pain, and she said she will inform the doctor and call me back.

Could it be ectopic or something?? :--(
I know I am stressing myself too much. Ignorance is sometimes bliss.

Did you have continous pain, on one side?
I hope everything is okay too.

I still get pain/twitching. The other day it was like a pinching feeling right near my hairline. It went away after drinking some water. I put it down to stretching.

Thats reassuring as well!
Just got a call from the Doc's office.
I had put the pain at 4 on a scale of 1-10. And she said if it becomes 7 and unbearable and if there is bleeding, nausea, vomitting then I can set up an appt for tomorrow. She asked me to monitor myself. She said its the ovaries filling with blood which is normal, and the body is just getting adjusted to pregnancy.

Sounds right?
I am going to continue monitoring myself.
The pain is still dull and seems to be better when I am walking around.
Will drink loads of water today and see if it helps!
