Brief Answer:
Get Pelvic Ultrasound done.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Thanks for writing to us at HCM.
Congratulations on the good news.
Mild pains in pregnancy are very common which subside over time. They may have prediliction towards one side, so that should not cause so much worry.
I will advise you to get an Ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis. it will help to see the site of implantation and age of the foetus.
Drink lots of water and take folic acid tablet daily.
Get back ro me with reports.
Regards Dr Manisha

Brief Answer:
Normal to have pain

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, if the pain is mild there is nothing to worry as most probably its normal only.
Pain is more common on right side because gravid uterus is normally rotated to right side so puts pressure on that side only.
Visit your gynecologist with relaxed mind and everything will be fine. t
All the best

During the screening I am detected with a fibroid sized 2.4X1.6 Cm in in the anterior myometrium of the uterus .
