Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically throughout pregnancy, the uterus will constantly experience small contractions. The greater the gestational age, these contractions can be felt even stronger. These uterine contractions are called false contractions or Braxton Hicks contractions, which are contractions that do not cause the opening of the birth canal. Uterine contractions are often felt as cramps in the abdomen, sometimes can cause mild pain such as pain during menstruation. By the age of 40 weeks of pregnancy, uterine contractions will get stronger and regular and will cause the opening of the birth canal, so-called labor contractions.
Abdominal cramps in pregnancy can also be caused by other causes, such as flatulence, constipation, urinary tract infections or infections of the reproductive organs, pregnancy complications such as miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, molar pregnancy, etc.
As long as your wife feels only mild stomach cramps, cramps can disappear on their own, the stomach is not felt hard, so there is nothing to worry about. If cramps are felt very great, the stomach feels very painful, the stomach feels hard, or blood comes out of the vagina, you should take your wife to the obstetrician as soon as possible.
For now, you can advise your wife to sit and rest when her stomach cramps are coming. Bathing in warm water (DO NOT hot water), can also help relieve stomach cramps. In addition, also advise your wife to drink more water.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
