Bleeding Accompanied By Abdominal Pain At 6 Weeks Pregnant?
Afternoon .. I want to ask .. On September 23rd, the age of 6w I was pregnant with bleeding for 1 week .. When on ultrasound the doctor said there was no problem with my uterus and the fetus was not visible .. The doctor gave the fetus strengthening medicine .. After the bleeding I did not prnh feel pain or cramps in the stomach .. But after that I feel my breasts are not as tight as before bleeding .. Currently my stomach looks getting bigger .. Is my womb still okay? I haven’t checked again because the distance to the doctor is far away .. And I don’t allow long trips .. Please explain
Hello Tika, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Actually, to find out whether the fetus in the womb is healthy or not (especially in young pregnancy), it cannot be done only with certain clinical signs (for example, enlarged or shrinking breasts, an enlarged or not enlarged stomach). During early pregnancy, the breasts can become enlarged and feel painful and tight, but this usually doesn't happen throughout the pregnancy. The stomach also may not experience enlargement in the first trimester (especially in women who are thin at the beginning of pregnancy) and this can be normal. The enlargement of the stomach in early pregnancy is also usually caused more by flatulence and constipation than the enlargement of the baby (because basically the baby is still very small in young pregnancy).
To be able to confirm the condition of your pregnancy and the baby in your womb, you really have to go back to your obstetrician. Usually the obstetrician who examines you will provide a control schedule for the ultrasound again if indeed at 6 weeks of pregnancy the fetus cannot be seen. Traveling long distances or being exposed to minor shocks basically will not have any particular impact on your pregnancy and fetus. Therefore, you should still check with your gynecologist. If there is a midwife near your house who is trained in using ultrasound, you can also check with a midwife.
If there is bleeding back from the vagina, especially if the bleeding is profuse, or if you experience severe stomach cramps until your stomach feels hard, you should go to the hospital immediately. For now, try to get more rest if you feel tired, eat nutritious foods in moderation (not less and don't overdo it), drink more, and do moderate exercise regularly (as your body can tolerate) so that your body stay in shape. Also make sure you are taking the pregnancy vitamins prescribed by your doctor or midwife.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
