    Default Sharp pain in side

    I'm 17weeks and since this morning have has a sharp pain in my right hand side.
    It feels like the baby has a little knife and is stabbing me from the inside.

    Normal or something I should be worried about?

    I haven't been able to get into a comfortable sleeping position and thinking I might have slept awkwardly last night but not sure if I should be concerned

    I had something like that right through my first pregnancy. It was a dull pain near my right ovary, and usually only when I walked. It was so painful that I couldn't walk a block without stopping three times. The ob was unconcerned and diagnosed it as a 'pain in my right side'. However, you also need to remember your appendix is in you lower right side, liver is upper right side and at the front, and kidneys are completely over the right side.

    Thanks for your reply. The pain ended up going away after I used a heat pack. I mentioned it at my doctors appointment and she seems to think it was more of a muscular pain since it went away after heat was applied.
