This is my first child, so I don't really know what to expect! but the one thing i do tend to get often is pain in the right side of my stomach, it lasts no more than a couple of seconds and feels like i have just pulled a muscle... I am almost 12 weeks pregnant... should i worry? go to the hospital? or could this just be something very normal???

I'm on my third and occasionally get pains. I having always called them growing pains. Your baby is making your belly and internal organs and all those surrounding muscles do a lot of work right now. Like everyone else said, if they don't go away, talk to your doctor.

I started feeling that at around 10 weeks and read up about it in a book (its a pregnancy week by week book that has been SO wonderful!) basically I found out its just the uterus growing! As long as the pain isn't unbearable, you should be fine. ALWAYS tell your doctor about these things, though, just in case.

I actually asked my nurse at my last appointment about that specific pain and she said pretty much what Amber said, with the addendum that should the pain increase in severity or duration then you should go in an see your OB.

Thank you for the information. The pain is very quick, no more than a couple of seconds when it does happen... I think I am just going to mention when I am at the next scan (thursday) and then i can be 100 percent sure x

This is my 3rd pregnancy and each time early on I have felt pain similar to what you are describing. I found it to be round ligament pains caused by your uterus expanding and tugging the ligaments that hold it in place. Of course if the pain doesn't subside quickly I would call your doctor.
