I understand your concern, abdominal pain during pregnancy, including abdominal pain and cramps, is normal. This can be part of the process of changing your body during pregnancy. But in addition, there are also a number of things that cause stomach pain during pregnancy that you need to worry about. Because, the cause of your stomach pain can be a serious condition that needs to be treated by a doctor. There are several possible causes of pain experienced including:
Stomach belly: Gas that accumulates in the stomach during pregnancy can make you feel uncomfortable in the abdomen. Stomach stomach is usually caused by increased levels of the hormone progesterone, which can cause the muscles in the digestive tract to rest. The more this hormone is released by the body, the digestive tract will work more slowly. Thus, the time spent on food in the large intestine is longer and causes stomach stomach. constipation: This digestive problem can also be caused due to hormonal changes during pregnancy. Braxton-Hicks contractions: feel like tightening of the abdominal muscles so that the stomach feels tighter or harder. Meanwhile, the contractions when you want to give birth feel stronger and more painful, and last longer. round ligament pain: When the uterus enlarges and stretches, the ligaments also stretch. This makes you feel sharp pain in the stomach, pelvis, or groin. Your body movements, such as when changing body position, sneezing, and coughing can make you feel the round ligament pain. There are also causes to watch out for such as:
miscarriage in placental urinary tract infections or detachment of the placenta from the uterus Preeclampsia is characterized by high blood pressure in pregnancy and protein in the urine after 20 weeks gestation. Abdominal pain is usually felt under the right rib, accompanied by other symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, headache, swelling in the legs, excessive weight gain. if your complaint is very severe and disturbing especially if accompanied by other complaints, especially such as bleeding immediately consult your obstetrician to get treatment immediately.
