The bigger the fetus, the stronger the movement will be. Sometimes fetal movements feel like kicking hard to cause slight pain. Apart from the influence of fetal movements that are getting stronger, pain such as being pinched on the stomach during pregnancy can also be caused by the following conditions:
Hormonal changes that cause more gas in the stomach
Constipation and indigestion
Disorders of the placenta
Urinary tract infection
If the pain is getting worse or the pain is felt at any time, you should first control with an obstetrician so that further tests can be carried out for example by ultrasound, blood tests, urine tests, and vaginal fluid tests if there is to ascertain the cause of abdominal pain like being pinched you feel. Once the cause is known, the doctor can provide additional treatment in accordance with the results of your examination.
While waiting to see a doctor, you can do the following tips:
Get enough rest
Lie on your left side
Gently rub the stomach when your child moves
Avoid activities that are too heavy
Do pregnancy exercise or yoga, but you should first consult with your obstetrician
Hope it helps you,
