Okay ladies, I have just read several articles and a few threads here on ectopic pregnancy and I probably should not have, because now I have myself all worked up.
Just about two hours ago I started getting a dull ache in my lower left side. I've had kidney stones before and it feels a little like the start of one. It's just enough of an ache to be annoying, but not really painful. Some of the articles mentioned bloating as a symptom, and I've been bloated a little for the last several days, but I attributed that to early pregnancy symptoms, as I did the mild cramping (period like) that I've had. I had the cramping with my last pregnancy for several weeks.
I'm about 5 weeks along.
Should I be concerned? Or should I just try to relax and see what happens? From what I've read there isn't much they can do to diagnose an ectopic at this early point, right? Should I call the OB I have an appt with? The appt isn't until May 13. Is there anything that can be done at this point or should I just relax and thing positive?
Thanks for any input!
