Lower Right Abdominal Pain During Pregnancy


What should I do if I feel lower right abdominal
pain during pregnancy? If you are in your second trimester, this
may be caused by a ligament around the uterus. It helps support the uterus, which is stretching
and growing. So I’ve pulled a ligament without doing
anything. It has been tightened and stretched by the
growing baby. Any sudden pulls to it or the kid literally kicking it causes you pain. I can’t imagine how I’d suddenly pull
it. You pull that ligament when you stand up quickly,
but you could pull it just rolling over in bed. Talk about a literal pain in the butt, well,
groin. The pain should only last a few seconds. That’s too fast for pain relievers to be
any use. But it happens so often that it is definitely a pain. You can do stretches so that any sudden movement
won’t strain it to the point of pain. Or flex your hips before you cough and laugh
so that won’t strain it. I never would have thought a belly laugh could
literally hurt you. You can treat it with a heating pad. Though
if the pain keeps recurring or lasts more than a few minutes you need to call the doctor. I just hate the regular pain when I get up
and walk around. If it hurts when you walk or is really bad,
it could be something a lot worse. Like what? It could be appendicitis, a hernia or an infection
like a urinary tract infection. Any long term pain should land you in the doctor’s office. It’s just a muscle strain. If it happens frequently, it might actually
be early labor or a miscarriage. At which point, I need to be in front of the
doctor again. A little paranoia now is better than a lot
of worrying about early labor or serious health problems later. That’s just getting ready for every cough
and sneeze and problem the newborn will have.
