Wow. This scars me. I had tubal pregnancy due to severe adhesions. 3 years later I got pregnant again. I had pain at first then everything was ok until delivery. I was induced and the cord was rapped around my sons neck. Now I pregnant again. I am having a lot more pain than I remember from last time. I feel sharp pains going down by bowel. This could last all day off and on. I found that if I massage the area it's suppose to release the adhesions. not make the pains so severe but I do have to be careful. So sorry to hear about your pain. I think there needs to be more research on adhesions and pregnancy to prepare the ones that have this. Liz
