How To Deal With Painful Appendicitis Scars When 31 Weeks Pregnant?
Now I am 31 w pregnant, then 2 years before becoming pregnant I have appendicitis, Laparoscopy, and now the right abdomen.
Hello Hani Fah,
Abdominal pain during pregnancy that you experience is not necessarily related to the former operation performed 2 years ago. Sharp stomach pain can be experienced by pregnant women due to the following causes:
Abdominal cramps that arise due to the size of the uterus that is getting bigger will cause stretching of the muscles and ligaments around it
Umbilical hernia, which is due to great pressure due to pregnancy, the abdominal organs such as intestinal hanging tissue can go out through the weak muscle area in the navel
Urinary tract infection
Severe abdominal pain can be a danger sign of the threat of preterm labor or other things such as placental detachment if accompanied by the following signs:
Abdominal pain is getting heavier and more frequent (contraction), radiating to the back of the waist or to the lower abdomen
Decreased fetal movements
In such cases mothers should immediately consult a gynecologist. To reduce abdominal pain when pregnancy gets bigger, mothers can do the following things:
Try to keep on the move, but avoid activities that are too heavy
Join pregnancy exercises
Breathing exercises for pregnant women
Avoid using pants that are too tight
Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
