Pain In The Hips And Buttocks, And Fetal Movements Are Reduced?
Good afternoon, I’m Ayu, age 20. Currently she is approximately UK 27w. The last 3 days I experienced pain in my left hip and buttocks which caused me to have difficulty sleeping, walking, and doing other activities. And fetal movements are also not active as before, if usually after eating or when lying down feels very active movements, this time is not so. I am also not taking any vitamins because last month when I went to the obstetrician, the doctor did not give me vitamins or supplements (I regularly check with the doctor once a month). 3 days ago I was mopping in a squatting position, does that matter? And how to overcome them? Thanks for your answer 🙂

Pelvic pain that you experience, can be related to several diseases that occur in pregnant women, including:
1. Ischialgia, this disease is associated with an increase in the volume of the stomach of pregnant women who are followed by stretching of the abdominal and pelvic muscles, which causes excess pressure to clamp the ischiadicus nerve. Characterized by pain in the buttocks that spread to the thighs, calves and legs.
2. Radiculopathy is inflammation or inflammation of the spine due to spinal discs pinching nerves. This condition is due to the increasing spinal load in accordance with the increase in gestational age.
To overcome this you can take anti-pain medications that are safe for pregnant women, such as paracetamol. Mothers should avoid bending for too long, squatting too long and lifting heavy loads. If after three days your complaint does not improve, you should consult a neurologist. When consulting remind your doctor that you are a pregnant woman. The neurologist will ask you to consult with a medical rehab doctor to get physiotherapy if needed.
Regarding the fetal movements that you feel are less than before, you should check with your nearest midwife or doctor. The midwife or doctor will make your mother's heartbeat sound. The midwife or doctor will interpret whether your fetal heart rate is in normal condition or requires further examination.
Thus hopefully useful.
