During pregnancy, your growing fetus will certainly make the burden that must be supported by the stomach also increases. This condition often causes pregnant women to feel pain, especially when the gestational age is getting bigger, namely timers 2 or 3. Excessive amniotic fluid volume (polyhydramnios), large fetal size, twin fetuses (gemelli), excessive mobility, lack of rest The use of uncomfortable clothing and footwear, and a variety of other factors can also aggravate this pain.
Pain in the lower abdomen during pregnancy can also indicate the following:
Muscle aches --- can aggravate with fatigue, poor posture, and excessive mobility Urinary tract disorders, for example due to infections or stones --- often appear accompanied by disturbances during urination, such as plaques, stinging urine, cloudy color , or containing blood disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, for example due to gastroenteritis, dyspepsia --- often appear accompanied by nausea, vomiting, bowel obstruction, and decreased appetite False contractions --- can be accompanied by a stomach that feels tight, the frequency can be increase with increasing gestational age Other, such as due to cysts, myomas, psychosomatic disorders, etc. If the pain that appears in its intensity is mild, not accompanied by other complaints, such as fever, vomiting, disruption of bowel movements, bleeding from the birth canal, etc. often this condition is not dangerous and does not also require special treatment. You can relieve the pain first with warm water compresses, while increasing rest and limiting excessive activity first. Don't forget to always eat regularly, drink enough, and manage your emotions wisely.
However, if after doing the above tips the pain still has not improved, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or obstetrician to be handled optimally, right?
I hope this helps.
