Stomach Feels Hard When Pregnant?
The doctor was very pregnant with a hard stomach
Hi, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
In a woman who is pregnant, there is an increase in the weight of organs in the stomach due to the presence of the fetus, placenta and amniotic fluid. Entering the age of 12 weeks of pregnancy, the uterus can begin to be palpated, which is the size of a goose egg, but still inside the pelvis. At 16 weeks' gestation, the uterus begins to enter the lower abdomen. And at 22 weeks' gestation, the uterus is as tall as your belly button.
Increasing the mass of organs in your stomach will certainly cause the abdominal wall to feel harder than before. However, if a hard palpable stomach is followed by the following things, namely:
1. Uterine contractions such as feeling like giving birth.
2. Bleeding from the birth canal.
3. High fever.
4. Increased abdominal pain
5. Decreased awareness.
Then immediately seek medical help. You can take your wife to the nearest hospital emergency room. Your wife may have several conditions, including:
1. Pregnancy outside the uterus that is disturbed.
2. Rupture of the infected appendix.
3. And others.
Thus, hopefully useful.
