Bone Pain And Joints During 4 Months Pregnancy?
Hello, I am 17 weeks and 6 days pregnant. There are a few things I want to ask: 1. When the pregnancy enters 16 weeks of age, the joint suddenly arrives; my bones ache in my fingers, wrists, left elbows, left knees and bones in the face ache like fever. But I did not have a fever at all. After it is compressed, warm water is rather better. Is it reasonable? 2. Starting a few days ago my stomach felt harder, especially after eating for 2-3 hours after that it felt so hard that sometimes cramps, like bloating. Stomach cramps in the lower right and upper left near the rib cage. At first I thought I was constipated, but it turned out the next morning BAB was smooth as usual and my stomach felt better. But after eating, come back like that. Farts also smell bad. Is it reasonable?
Hello Weirdonaive, thanks for asking.
Pregnancy is a natural process that involves changes in various systems of the female body. One of the earliest changes that occur is a change in reproductive hormone levels. Hormonal changes cause a variety of symptoms that are naturally experienced during pregnancy. These symptoms for example:
Increased breast size, accompanied by pain.
The growth of head hair and body hair is more dense.
Sometimes pimples occur.
Some parts of the skin darken.
Arise stretch marks on the skin of the abdomen and thighs.
Mild fever is lost.
Muscle ache. Sometimes also accompanied by joint pain.
Excessive sweat production.
And many other symptoms of pregnancy. Therefore, muscle and joint pain that you experience may be a result of hormonal changes. However, if bone and joint pain are accompanied by swelling, redness, and joint stiffness, then you should consult a doctor, because this may be a symptom of arthritis (joint inflammation).
A stomach that feels hard and bloated, especially immediately after eating, may be caused by stomach or small intestinal disorders. For example:
Generally symptoms are triggered or worsened due to eating. Lower abdominal cramps also need to be aware because they may be one of the signs of early contractions. Please consult with your obstetrician. The doctor will assess your condition and refer you to an internist if necessary. In the meantime, try to keep eating on a regular schedule 3 times a day, or try to eat smaller portions but often, around 5-6 times. Choose the type of food that is easy to digest. Make sure to consume 2 L of water per day. Vegetable and fruit intake must be optimal.
Thus my explanation, hopefully useful. Regards.
