Expectant mothers, especially in the first pregnancy, they have trouble distinguishing between "ordinary pain", caused by, for example, stomach problems, pressure from the enlarging uterus and pain that requires immediate intervention. They are usually not able to assess whether the emerging abdominal pain is pregnant physiological or not.

Pregnant women often do not know (why it is not surprising) what changes should cause their vigilance and motivate them to visit the doctor's office. They often get worried and wonder whether to immediately report to a gynecologist, go to the hospital, or just wait for temporary discomfort.

Therefore, it is worth explaining what pain is dangerous in pregnancy. About it below.

Does pregnancy hurt?

Rarely, pregnancy is painless. Usually, at different stages, the expectant mother he feels all kinds of pain. Shortly after fertilization, it is usually sticking to the sides of the abdomen, in the ovary area, as the uterus increases, discomfort often arises associated with stretching the ligaments, and at the end of pregnancy many future mothers are faced with hardening of the uterus, "appearing", discomfort caused by the child's pressure on the bladder and individual organs, as well as with predictive contractions.

What stomach aches are dangerous in pregnancy?

Before the expectant mother survives until the end of pregnancy, i.e. around the 38th week of pregnancy, when she can give birth without any negative consequences, she should pay particular attention to the pains that:

  • resemble menstrual cramps,
  • they last a long time (several seconds),
  • appear in waves
  • do not pass after changing positions (e.g. after resting),
  • resembling pulling and numbness in the lower abdomen

All these symptoms indicate an increased uterine contractions and may be a real signal of preterm labor.

Remember! If the stomach ache, despite changing position, does not go away, is regular, rhythmic, strong, you should immediately consult a doctor. If this is not possible, contact any gynecologist or go to the gynecology and obstetrics department.
