First trimester abdominal pain

First trimester abdominal pain

Discomforts in early pregnancy are common. Know about aches in early pregnancy and when to worry about such pains, especially the first trimester abdominal pains!

Some usual causes of abdominal pain include:

Period-like cramping- These are usually milder than period cramps you may feel in your abdomen. Cramping is due to your stretching of uterus and it is nothing at all to worry about.

Indigestion, wind and bloating-From the time of conception your digestive system is affected and you may experience more wind than usual, which can be uncomfortable and painful at times, particularly if it is trapped.

Diarrhea- Hormonal changes sometimes have an opposite effect on bowels, as it can lead to diarrhea.


When to worry:

If you’re having abdominal pain along with other symptoms, you may need to get help. This includes:

Constipation and piles- Constipation can also cause or aggravate piles, and thereby causing abdominal pain.

Early miscarriage– Unfortunately, early miscarriage is fairly common. It happens because a baby was not developing properly. You’ll experience cramps, bleeding and pain in the centre of your lower belly, some times during first 12 weeks of your pregnancy. Immediately call your doctor and then lie down or sit with your feet up.

Ectopic pregnancy– An ectopic pregnancy is when an egg fertilizes outside the uterus. This time the pregnancy can’t be saved. It’s a serious condition, so you’ll require swift treatment. You’ll feel painful cramping along with tenderness that usually starts from one side and spreads across your stomach. You will have dark and watery bleeding. It usually happens between five weeks and 10 weeks of pregnancy. Contact your doctor immediately, as an ectopic pregnancy needs quick treatment.
