    Round ligament pain or something like that. Can't remember what it's actually called. But I had that, randomly excruciating pain. If you're worried see your doctor to get it checked.

    No bleeding... Most of the time it's dull but sometimes the pains are very sharp

    Copied from elsewhere...

    The round ligaments surround your uterus in your pelvis. As your uterus grows during pregnancy, the ligaments stretch and thicken to accommodate and support it. These changes may occasionally cause pain on one or both sides of your abdomen, typically first noticed during the second trimester.

    You may feel round ligament pain as a short jabbing sensation or a sharp, stabbing pain if you suddenly change position, such as when you're getting out of bed or out of a chair or when you cough, roll over in bed, or get out of the bathtub. You might also feel it as a dull ache after a particularly active day – when you've been walking a lot or doing some other physical activity.

    You may feel the pain starting from deep inside your groin, moving upward and outward on either side to the top of your hips. The pain is internal, but if you were to trace it on your skin, it would follow the bikini line on a very high-cut bathing suit.

    It won't show up on an ultrasound. I remember mine started quite early, I think about 8 weeks or earlier. I freaked out and my sister diagnosed me, the ob later confirmed her diagnosis.

    Thanks for that. I know it won't show up in an ultrasound, I was thinking more along the lines of an ultrasound will help put my mind at ease that Bub is ok. I've had some light pink and brown bleeding this morning and am at hospital waiting to be seen by a midwife... Hopefully it's not bad news
