Pain on Left Side Since Yesterday *Update*

Postby Fairy Wings » Sat Apr 18, 2015 10:43 am

I need some input on what to do right now. This is my first pregnancy so I'm definitely prone to paranoia and I don't want to overreact, but I've had moderate pain just inferior and medial to my left hip bone since yesterday morning. At times the pain is pretty uncomfortable but I wouldn't say severe. I have no bleeding. I called my OB and got a call back from the nurse who told me as long as there's no bleeding and it doesn't get worse not to worry, but today it is a little worse. I'm worried it might be an ectopic pregnancy because this is about the time that they present and the pain is different from all the other cramping I've experienced so far. Its more of a pinching and its been in the exact same spot the entire time. I am thinking about going to the ER but I don't want to go if this is just some hormonal overreaction. What do you ladies think? Should I go to the hospital or wait until Monday and call my OB again?

**So I went to the ER because the pain got worse and it turns out I have a cyst on my left ovary but the baby is fine! They detected a heart beat and I measured 7 weeks exactly. Woot! I'm so happy this turned out ok! ** :fingersx:

Thank God! I am so glad all turned out well, the cyst was spotted and that baby is on track ! That's fantastic! You did the right thing with going to the ER. Sometimes when you get that gut feeling that something feels different it usually is best to get it checked out. Now with that being said enjoy your pregnancy!

Yes it was probably a corpus luteum cyst. My OB's nurse said the US report says they didn't see anything on my left ovary but the ER doc said it was a cyst so maybe he just assumed it was a cyst because of my history and because he ruled out everything else? It felt just like the cysts I tend to get a few times a year around my period. Maybe it already ruptured at that point? I don't know. The ER doc was incredibly vague and it was like pulling teeth to get info out of him.

I went to the ER for left sided pain too. Ultrasound show corpus luteum cyst along with another complex cyst on my left ovary. Everything with baby looks fine right now though. Still having pains from my cyst.

Sara, Its pretty scary when you first feel that level of pain but luckily it doesn't cause any harm to the baby. Hopefully yours will resolve soon!
