What organ is being crushed now?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have a wicked pain in my upper right abdomen (I'm petite & D day is under 2 wks)?  Liver, pancreas?  Any ideas?  I guess it doesn't matter but I might feel better if I knew what the pain was.

Do you still have your gallbladder? What kind of pain is it? Sometimes gallbladder issues flare up during pregnancy.

Although, I occasionally get pain in the same area and I don't have a gallbladder, so liver? lol

Whatever the pain, hope it starts feeling better soon!

It could be your right lung?

DDCC -- I'd run this one by your MW or OB.  Not to scare you, since it's probably just normal pregnancy pain, but liver issues (and HELLP syndrome) can manifest as upper right quadrant pain.  (I had a scare myself so I did a lot of internet browsing.)  I'd mention it just to make doubly sure it's ok!

The pain has subsided, seems to happen more at night?  I talked to my doula & she said if it persisted I should talk to my MW.
