Understanding Abdominal Pain during Pregnancy!

Understanding Abdominal Pain during Pregnancy!

Pregnancy completely changes your life, and of course your body. Abdominal pain is one of the issues of pregnancy. Having some stomach pain or discomfort is expected in pregnancy, but if it goes beyond limits, it might be harmful.

It is due to your expanding womb and hormones. Carrying a baby puts a lot of pressure on your muscles, joints and veins; this can cause discomfort around the stomach area. From the time of conception to the delivery, you will experience so many types of stomach aches due to numerous reasons. Some reasons are normal but some reasons might be serious.

Here this blog explains you about abdominal pains during pregnancy, reasons, when to worry and how to cope with such situation.

How can I ease my abdominal pain?

  • Resting during the pain usually eases cramping
  • Sit down for a while.
  • Lie down on the opposite side of the pain and place your feet up.
  • Try warm bath.
  • Keep a hot water bottle on the painful areas.

Many a times, having intercourse and reaching orgasm can cause cramps or a slight backache. Try to have soft and slow intercourse during pregnancy, if at all.

What if I feel unwell?

Sometimes, abdominal pain could due to the reason that is not related to pregnancy, but completely disconnected such as appendicitis, kidney stones, an ovarian cyst, a urinary tract infection (UTI) or gall bladder problem. Actually, sometimes pregnancy may also trigger a problem. Fibroids, present in uterus that didn’t bother you earlier may feel uncomfortable now that you’re pregnant.

Notice what you’re feeling and tell your doctor about it. However, don’t hesitate to get help if pain doesn’t go away even after several minutes of rest or if cramping is continued along with:

  • pain or burning
  • unusual vaginal discharge
  • spotting or bleeding
  • tenderness
  • vomiting
  • fever or chills
