The Upper Stomach Feels Empty At 7 Months Of Pregnancy?
… I am on behalf of KURNIAH WATI Want to ask My age is about 7 months in my womb 2 weeks … Why is my stomach feeling empty and also feels hard on the right side? Is it dangerous or not for my pregnancy?
Hello Kurniahwati, Thank you for the question.
Do you experience other complaints such as nausea, vomiting, headaches, blurred vision? How is the condition of your pregnancy so far after being examined by a midwife or obstetrician? Your complaint can be caused by a disruption in the digestive tract. The existence of hormonal changes during pregnancy causes the movement of the digestive tract to be slower and increased production of gas in the stomach. In addition, increased size of the uterus can cause pressure on the stomach. These things can cause complaints that you mention. However, we also need to watch out for the possibility of preeclampsia, which is a pregnancy complication which is characterized by high blood pressure and the presence of protein in the urine. This condition can cause health threats to other organs such as kidneys and liver. The cause of preeclampsia is impaired placental development so that blood flow to the baby is disrupted. Preeclampsia does not always cause symptoms, usually the initial sign is high blood pressure. If symptoms appear, then the symptoms that can appear are headaches, visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, right upper abdominal pain.
If at your previous pregnancy check up, your midwife or doctor did not report any problems with your pregnancy, then you can monitor your condition first, Try to regulate your diet, avoid consuming large portions of food. You are encouraged to consume food in small portions but more often. Avoid consuming spicy and oily foods and foods that contain gas. If this complaint is accompanied by other symptoms mentioned earlier, please immediately check with your midwife or obstetrician, yes.
Hopefully this information is useful.
