Pain In The Upper Right Abdomen During 8 Months Of Pregnancy?
Hello, I want to ask the age of my current uterus 8 months, why do I often get abdominal pain in my right upper abdomen? It really feels like being pricked, and even if the abdominal skin caresses, does it hurt whether it is harmful to the baby? Thank you.
Hello Wida Widya Wati, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of pain in the stomach during pregnancy can be caused by several things such as:
Ligament pain (pain arising from stretching of the ligaments / uterine supporting tissue) Abdominal cramps Constipation Too much gas in the digestive tract Premature contractions False contractions Detachment of the placenta from its attachment (abusive placenta) HELLP syndrome Some of the conditions above, will not cause things dangerous for the fetus in the womb, but several other conditions can be dangerous both for the mother and the fetus and generally require quick action. Therefore, you should check the complaint immediately and directly to the obstetrician for an examination of both your situation, and the condition of your fetus, so it can be determined what causes your complaints and whether this is dangerous or not for the fetus or for yourself. After the necessary checks are made, then you can also determine what further actions should be given to you to resolve the complaint.
For now, get to the doctor immediately for an examination, do not delay or take abdominal pain relievers on your own because each drug has a different effect on pregnancy. Keep eating as usual, but avoid foods that are spicy and sour for a while. Increase consumption of vegetables and fruits, and do a pregnancy check according to schedule.
If this complaint is accompanied by discharge of mucus and blood or water from the birth canal, immediately go to the hospital for immediate action.
I hope this helps.
