10 weeks: Sharp stabbing pains in lower abdomen?


I will be 10 weeks tomorrow, and about 2 hours ago I woke from a nap with sharp shooting pains in my lower abdomen. It was painful enough to knock the wind out of me, but no bleeding. It has become less frequent now, but every so often, I get a sharp stabbing pain that makes me jump! Anyone experience this? Any advice?

Thank you for reading

I got a little of that which started a couple of days ago, but I think if you're not bleeding, it's probably just your utuerus stretching since the baby is getting bigger. There is a lot going on in there, so it could just be all the changes. If it doesn't go away and is too painful, I would go see a doctor just to be safe.

Hi! I had this yesterday and I am also 10 weeks, 11 after the weekend if I get that far...
Mine felt like a knife through the centre of where I think my uterus is, was yours like that? I have posted on the PAL forum (had a MMC at 11 weeks a couple of years ago and this is my first pregnancy since so I am TERRIFIED!) but no one there really seemed to recognize the pain I was talking about?
I hope for both of us that it's all normal and everything's ok xx

I had some pain like this last night. I was hunched over online and it felt as if my baby had taken a disliking to the position and was karate kicking me in my cervix. It was so sharp it made me gasp- it went away though when I sat back and relaxed. I get all sorts of random pains but I check HB with the doppler and that takes the moments of worry away. I had a mmc too last year and its made me super aware of my uterus and the goings on of its occupant!

Always call your midwife if you experience pain you feel is too much, they are used to ladies calling them for allsorts and will be very happy to reassure you and explain whats what.

Yes, that is the pain I am having too! It is random and surprises me every time. Just feels like I'm being stabbed and makes me catch my breath It is still going on now, about every minute or so, sometimes it goes away for 5 minutes. I have my first scan scheduled for Tuesday, so if it doesn't get worse before then, I'm just going to wait it out. I hope everything is just fine for us!

Please let me know how your scan goes and I will update you on mine, if its ok...if it's not then I guess I'll be packing for another horrific day in the hospital, but I can't bear to think about that yet
Hopefully the fact that we both feel it might mean it's a normal stretching pain. It definitely helps to feel more normal when someone else has had the same feeling! Wishing you lots of luck for Tuesday x

I am 10 weeks tomorrow and I am also having these sharp random pains. It feels like its in my left ovary....I have had them off and on for about 2 days, they don't last very long.

Maybe this is normal since we all have them at almost 10 weeks! Fingers crossed for all of us, I'll let y'all know how the scan goes on Tuesday

Hey
I wanted to write sooner but baby and bump has been down for hours...
Well, I had the scan and everything was fine! The bean kicked and waved and at one point even went for a little swim about!! It was magical
Best of luck for your scan today, try to stay calm even though it's really hard xxx

Hey! So glad to hear everything is well with you and Baby!

The scan went great today, Baby measured 10 weeks + 3 days and was wiggling about like crazy too! It was quite amazing to watch, hard to believe that was going on in me! The camera even caught a glimpse between the little legs... I have my ideas of what the sex is, but won't tell family until it is confirmed since it is so early! I still can't believe how much detail you can see so early on!
