There is a lot going on in there remember . It's so easy to overanalyse each and every twinge and pain . The best thing to do is to try and stay calm for your embryo. If you have any major concern or you just want to put your mind at rest you could maybe ring your clinic .

Wishing you a lot of luck xx

When I was on 2ww I felt similar when I coughed but that was definitely around where my ovaries were. My nurse said that our bodies have been through a lot and it takes time for our ovaries to shrink back to normal size so pain isn't uncommon. I was still getting it at 12 weeks pregnant. I get some pain now at 19 weeks but it's moved to between the bikini line and hip - usually on the right hand side. I believe it's to do with ligaments stretching. Hope you're feeling better soon and good luck with your 2ww!

I had the same when coughing...it feels like a strained muscle ache, but I too put it down to my ovaries being pushed to their limits! Good luck 🍀
