Pregnancy Abdominal Pain in Third Trimester

Pregnancy Abdominal Pain in Third Trimester

During third trimester (or last trimester of pregnancy), pregnancy abdominal pain possibly means your body is limbering up too soon for birth hence here the main worry is premature labour. Going into premature labour pain doesn’t always mean that your baby is going to be delivered there and then. At times, as long as your waters haven’t broken down, it’s just only a false alarm.

Has your waters broken during pregnancy abdominal pain?

When you will experience premature labour, you’ll have pain in your pelvic or lower tummy area, in your back, some mild tummy cramps and diarrhea. You may also feel your waters breaking along with regular contractions or your uterus tightening and frequently painlessly. You can experience this any time between 24 weeks and 37 weeks of pregnancy. Urgently, call your doctor, if you think your water has broken.

Having cramps or abdominal pain after 37 weeks may mean you’re in the early stages of labour. During this stage, your pregnancy has reached tenure, so the cramps are a usual part of your body gearing up or preparing to give birth. You will also feel constant lower backache, which is caused by the increased pressure on your pelvis and back passage.

Early labour cramping is generally much less rigorous than the contractions you’ll experience during active labour. Try to rest on the sofa, or try going for a walk. The only thing you can do here is that, try to remain calm with such abdominal pains.
