Question:I m five week pregnant,I have back pain cramps on lower side, anything serious abt this or its normal
Answer: Hi dear, Too much pain in initial stages could be due to uterus expansion.i donot think there is anything to worry about.since the whole hormonal surge is new to your body,and it takes time to get used to it.your uterus keep expanding as your pregnancy progresses,also pushing the neighboring organs and pressing the adjacent nerves etc,meanwhile your pelvic bones starts relaxing more,loosening your joints too.this whole process gives such pain.and each body experiences in a different way.i never had such pains though,but many pregnant ladies suffer with such harmless pain.but if the pain is severe and you feel something is not right,please donot hesitate to check with your doctor.
Question:I have lower back pain is this normal during pregnancy
Answer: Hello dear. During pregnancy, your body makes a hormone called relaxin that allows ligaments in the pelvic area to relax and the joints to become looser in preparation for the birth process. The same hormone can cause ligaments that support the spine to loosen, leading to instability and pain. Here are a few tips that might relieve you from back pain : Ice or heat packs. Sleep on your left side, and use a support pillow under your knees. If these dosent help, please consult your gynecologist for further treatment. Take care.
Question:Hi, I m facing Back pain and pain in my leg,its my 19th week of pregnancy.is it serious concern.
Answer: Hello dear, Mussels stretching is the main reason for leg cramps and another body pain..... Stay off your feet. Avoid standing for long periods. When you can, sit with your feet up and occasionally rotate your feet at the ankles and gently flex your feet to stretch your calf muscles. Sleep on your left side. This takes pressure off the large vein that returns blood from the lower half of your body to your heart. Be physically active every day. Take walks, ride a stationary bike, Stand or walk in the pool. Foot massage and reflexology, might help decrease foot , thigh and ankle pain during pregnancy. Also, try to take (2.4 liters) of water a day during pregnancy. Although mild foot thigh and ankle pain during pregnancy is normal, sudden pain that is painful — especially if it's in one leg only — could be an indication of a blood clot. In that situation better to consult your doctor.
