Abdominal pain during pregnancy

posted 6 years 10 months ago
Abdominal pain during pregnancy isn’t unusual, but it can be scary. The pain may be sharp and stabbing, or dull and achy.
It can be challenging to determine if your pain is serious or mild. It’s important to know what’s normal and when to call your doctor
Gas can cause excruciating abdominal pain. It may stay in one area or travel throughout your belly, back, and chest.
Women experience more gas during pregnancy due to increased progesterone. Progesterone causes intestinal muscles to relax and extends the time it takes food to get through the intestines. Food remains in the colon longer, which allows more gas to develop.
As your pregnancy progresses, your enlarging uterus puts extra pressure on your organs, which can slow digestion further and allow gas to build up.

I had the bad experience with abdominal pain. At that stage I got this shocking pain through my right lower belly, it woke me up at 3 am. I had never felt pain like it; I was so scary at that time.
