I sat down for a bit and noticed if I shifted a certain way it would hurt, and if I took deep belly breaths, it would hurt when my muscles expanded. Pain scale level at this point was about a 7 or 8.
Last night the same thig happened--minus the rolling around. Just rather randomly. It was the same sensations but a little worse. I layed down and fell asleep and it seems to mostly subside. Pain scale level here was about a 7.5 or 8.
Right now I am experiencing a sharp stabbing like pain in the left of my uterus area. Pain scale now is about a 5 or 6, because its off and on...
I also had a dream last night that I miscarried--probably out of paranoia.
I realize that some cramping and pain is normal particularly during 1st trimester, but could this be a miscarriage without bleeding? Or is my uterus just suddenly in pain because its growing?
seems like there's a very wide range of pain with round ligament pain b/n women, so i hope you and baby are just fine! i know i've had very sharp and strong pain every once in a while, and several times in the first tri.
if it's very regular, maybe you're going to have a pregnancy with braxton-hix throughout? i'm sure women who've experienced that and had perfect babies will chime in!

I also am not sure about the round ligament pain... It's not on the extreme side in my pelvis. (I have had some previous pelvic pain, but nothing like this.) It is completely center and anterior (in the front) and it feels like its exactly in my uterus. (Afformentioned when I felt like my whole uterus was going nutso)
I also had a weird sharp but light tweak in what felt like my inner vagina earlier today...
It's very likely nothing but round ligament pain, especially because there's no bleeding which would normally accompany the cramps if this were a m/c.
My friend said it might be the oxytocin (sp?) released when me and dp had our romp. But I think its weird that its continuing into today. it doesn't feel like my muscles are actually contracting--it feels like a constant pain that lasts at least 20-30 min.
I've done some reading about people who had cramping or pain and then didnt start bleeding for a few days, either.
I dunno. It doesn't feel like the normal twinges I have had either...

the first e.r. i went to insisted that it couldn't be a cyst because i was pregnant and they didn't think that was possible - they kept telling me it was gas pain, until they did an u/s and saw the thing - 9 cm in diameter! apparently the cyst that formed when the egg from my last cycle was released didn't dissolve like it was supposed to and kept growing instead.
good luck! i hope you find an answer to put your mind at peace.
Definately doesn't feel like ligment pain, and really not too sure about the oxytocin idea or the bh idea. I don't feel it anywhere else.
Renee have you spoken to your health care provider? I'm going to give my birth center a call tomorrow, since it has been persistent. I considered going to the e.r. and getting an u/s, or at least calling the dept. and asking what they rccommend.
I was there for three hours, bascially spent an hour waiting to be discharged. Finally was.
I'm still going to speak with my mw tomorrow, so she could give me an explanation.
I forgot how big a joke hospitals were.
