Lower Abdominal Pain In Pregnant Women?
my wife is 9 months pregnant but her stomach often hurts and feels lumpy, that’s why, thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When the pregnancy is old enough, excessive stretching of the skin due to the growing fetus can certainly cause discomfort, it can be in the form of pain, itching, aches, or also lumps. This lump can also indicate that the lower part of the fetus (which is usually the head) has entered the pelvic inlet. If this condition occurs after the gestational age of over 36 weeks, then this could also mean that labor is getting closer. This complaint is generally very normal and will get worse the closer the time of delivery.
Do you need to clarify again when is your wife's HPL (forecast day of birth) according to the doctor? Is this her first pregnancy?
Some possible causes of pain and lump in the lower abdomen during pregnancy are:
Labor contractions (his)
Urinary tract infection
Cystitis (inflammation of the bladder)
Obstructive ileus (intestinal obstruction)
Hernias, and so on
We recommend that, considering your wife's gestational age is already 9 months, you should check her womb directly with an obstetrics and gynecology specialist. Many experts suggest that pregnancy check-ups be carried out by an obstetrician every 1 week since pregnancy enters the age of 9 months until the time for delivery arrives.
In the meantime, tell your wife to get more rest while hanging her legs or supporting her with pillows so that the muscles are more relaxed. Compress the painful lower abdomen using warm water. Avoid lifting things that are too heavy, wearing tight pants, and avoiding the habit of holding back or urinating.
Hope it helps ya..
