TMI ALERT: abdominal pain and brown stuff

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Last night I suffered some serious abdominal pain, and it is still somewhat present. I am trying to figure out is it gas or a UTI (trying to hold intention it is not the worst case scenerio.) ... Yesterday morning I participated in some marital relations and thought it could be that. It was pretty sore (still is tender) but realizing it hurts more when I have to go to the bathroom (hence why I suspect a UTI). It is in the middle of my uterus and toward the front (maybe the pain is my bladder but I am placing it in my uterus?)

 

Maybe it feels more like I did an intense core workout and some pain in the pelvic bone.

 

Then this morning I had some light light light brown discharge (light in color and quantity)...

 

I know this could be normal, just wondering if any other mama's have had this experience so I can ease my mind. (I am chuckling as a certified doula I am still a little freaked out in my internal process, much harder to reassure myself!. I have had several losses before my DD- about 7 years ago,)

How far along are you in pregnancy? If you are nearing the end, it could be some of your mucous plug coming out. If it's still early on, you may have just torn a little bit while having sex. You may also want to contact your midwife/OB just to rule out placental abruption. I had that when I was pregnant with my first. It didn't turn out bad at all, and I gave birth to a healthy girl full term, but it's good to know these things! :)
