Pain During Twin Pregnancy?

I am 21 weeks pregnant with fraternal twins (boy and girl). Since about 12 weeks I have gone through aweful pain in my lower abdomen with pain in my rectum a stabbing pain. Now I am experiencing a dull ache on my right middle abdomen that is so uncomfortable I can not sleep at night. Dr's keeps telling me it's all round ligament pain. Have any of you experienced this? I am a nurse I work 12 hour shifts on my feet..I am not sure how long I will be able to work like this.

I can relate.

Since I hit trimester number 2 I have had awful pain on my right side. But like Stacy, it seems to get better when I drink tons of water. I think it has something to do with dehydration and constipation. I also lay on my left side with a pillow between my legs to alleviate the pain.

Did you get hemmeroids when you gave birth? You may want to get those removed (or not). Also, you may have torn or aggravated something in there. If they operated on you maybe they left a sponge in the operating table. You never know. I don't have to tell you that it is a possibility.

your pain

The stabbing pain in your girly area is the round ligament pain or nerve pain. Either way, I have gotten it with all pregnancies and it totally sucks. There is no way to help it :(

Sorry for the bad news. Good luck. I feel your pain, I have had it for about 3 weeks now.

I have horribly intense cramps in my right side, that sent me to the ER twice. Drs gave me 3 possibilities, ovarian cyst, round ligament, or simply dehydration. Since the last trip I've made sure to have water with me at all times, and it seems so simple but helps! I even keep a huge bottle at my bedside. I get up about 20 times to pee, but the pains have been better! hope everything is ok.
