sharp stomach pains at 11wks

Postby nicann2012 » Tue Oct 29, 2013 2:38 am

Am 11wks now and past 2 days have been experiencing sharp pain above the naval.
doctor did warn that with the womb stretching, there will be some pain..as long as not lower tummy and no bleeding.
but i didnt expect the pain to be so bad! one night it woke me up and i couldnt even find a comfortable position to sleep..it feels a lot like gastric pains...
are these normal?
also, how long do they last??

I am also 11+ weeks and have been having sharp stomach pains today. but I think its from a stomach bug. my husband got very ill in the middle of the night, diarrhea and vomiting (sorry tmi) so I think I may have caught something too. I am just now finally eating something at 2pm because my stomach hurt so bad. something is definitely going around.

with my other pregnancies, I had stretching pain but it was more around my hips, really low, like by the bone.

I also had an episode of very bad stomach pains when I was pg with my daughter. it turned out to be gas. stupid me at a hotdog with sauerkraut and baked beans and it gave me horrific gas pain. :doh:

I was on Metformin until 7 weeks and I had really awful gas pains. It sounded silly to me to be in so much pain because of GAS but it was really awful. I was on the couch in pain pretty frequently. Peppermint tea helped me a lot. And getting off the Metformin made the gas go away completely.

Huh..who knew gas could be the culprit.
any suggestions on food that would make it go away?
today the pain has subsided but i still get some stabs of pain here and there...its quite frightening tho

If you're scared about it, give your doctor a call. They can also tell you any foods or medicine to help. I did peppermint tea and it helped tremendously.
