Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Gestational age can be estimated based on the first day of the last menstrual period. If you had your last menstrual period on June 20, 2019, today (July 28, 2019) it is estimated that your gestational age is 5 weeks 3 days.
Abdominal pain is a complaint that often occurs when pregnant. Generally abdominal pain at a young gestational age is normal and is usually associated with indigestion, for example: constipation due to lack of fiber intake, or increased production of gas in the digestive tract associated with hormonal changes. However, be aware of abdominal pain in young pregnancy with the following characteristics:
Continuously and regularly
Accompanied by bleeding from the birth canal
There are accompanying symptoms of fever, pain during urination, nausea and vomiting continuously, and chills
Does not diminish with rest
Immediately to the doctor if your stomach pain complaints have these characteristics. This is due to the possibility of abdominal pain associated with abnormal causes, such as miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, urinary tract infections, etc.
As for complaints of pain in the buttocks / pelvis in pregnancy generally associated with hip joint stiffness. This is generally based on the presence of the hormone relaxin in pregnant women which functions to flex the interspecific tissue in preparation for the birthing process. This physiological process causes movement between the joints to become relatively unstable and somewhat stiff, causing pain in the pelvic region and coccyx. Even so, you are still advised to consult directly with obstetricians and obstetricians to determine the cause.
At home, you are advised to get enough rest, reduce strenuous activities that are at risk of causing pain (example: heavy lifting, lots of bending, standing / sitting for a long time, lots of up and down stairs), eat balanced nutritious food, sleep on your side left, as well as gymnastics to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
