Answer: Pain in lower abdomen Is lower abdominal pain normal during pregnancy? Yes, occasional abdominal discomfort is common in pregnancy. The cause of this pain depends on what stage of pregnancy you are at.  Abdominal pain is also known as round ligament pain. In the first few weeks of pregnancy, your lower abdomen may hurt for a day or two as the embryo attaches itself to the uterus (womb).  You may also have abdominal pain if you have severe morning sickness and have been vomiting or throwing up a lot.  In the later stages of pregnancy, the pain is usually caused by the stretching of the muscles and ligaments supporting your womb. You'll probably feel it when you're getting up from bed or a chair, when you cough or when you squat down and get up.  You may also ache when your baby's head engages in the later stages of pregnancy. This type of pain is thought to be more common in second or more pregnancies. Acidity, bloating and gas may also cause aching in the final stages of pregnancy. But this kind of pain is not restricted to the lower abdomen.  While belly aches may be harmless, you should seek immediate medical attention if you have severe or persistent abdominal pain.  When should I call my doctor? Don't hesitate to call your doctor if your abdomen pain is persistent and is accompanied by: severe pain or cramping bleeding fever and chills loss of fluid from your vagina pain when you urinate a feeling of faintness Many other conditions, such as stomach upsets, urinary tract infection, appendicitis, and even constipation can cause abdominal pain, whether you're pregnant or not. Read about pregnancy symptoms you should never ignore. What can I do to relieve my abdominal pain? Sit down, put your feet up and relax. Resting comfortably should reduce any belly aches. Don't forget, it's a perfectly normal complaint of pregnancy, and it gives you an excuse to get off your feet - and even be waited on or pampered. If sitting doesn't help things, try resting on your hands and knees, or leaning forward against the back of a sofa. When you get up from bed, turn to your side and then get up slowly. Use your arms for support. This reduces the stress on your abdomen. Moving slowly and smoothly from a sitting or lying position can also help. Getting up slowly gives your muscles time to adapt and support you before you change position. Try tilting your pelvis backwards by slumping your back before you stand up. If you work, and your job involves sitting for long hours at your desk, try and take frequent breaks to stand up and walk around a bit. Drink plenty of water and other fluids to avoid dehydration in the hot summer months. If you have a lot of gas, avoid oily, spicy foods and heavy pulses such as rajma or chana that produce gas. You can eat them again when you feel better. A good home remedy for bloating and gas is to boil three or four teaspoons of fennel seeds (saunf) and cumin (jeera) in one litre of water. Cool it and take frequent sips through the day with a bit of sugar to make it tasty. Check with your doctor before using herbal powders, churans or over-the-counter medicines to relieve abdominal pain. These may contain ingredients that are not be suitable for pregnant women. If friends and family advise you to try certain yoga asanas to relieve pain, check with your doctor first. Some asanas or deep breathing techniques may not be suitable for pregnant women and may do more harm than good. Sometimes a support belt or large elasticated tubular bandage (tubigrip), specially designed for pregnancy, can help. A belt will take some of the weight of your baby off your tummy muscles. Your doctor will be able to advise you.

Question: I was admitted n hospital Friday night with complain of bleeding ,then after 2 days it was normal like mild spotting without any fresh blood but today m having little bit of blood s this normal,n anomaly scan I was having grade 1 placenta but now they are saying u have placenta low lying s this can happen n how what r causes
Answer: Am very sorry to hear that you have to go through such discomfort, but this is very much possible. Low-lying placenta, or placenta praevia, is a complication of pregnancy where the placenta that feeds the growing baby is attached to the lower part of the womb near to or covering the cervix. A low lying placenta, by itself, may not require any treatment. If it is early in your pregnancy, before the twentieth week, then there is a good chance that the placenta will shift into an upward position as your uterus expands. If the placenta stays at a low lying position but is not near enough to the cervix to be classified as placenta previa. However there are treatments to prevent the two most common complications of a low lying placenta: bleeding and preterm labor. To prevent these problems some women are placed on bed rest or limited activity. Especially activities that result in bouncing or jarring of the lower abdomen need to be avoided. Similarly some women need to refrain from sexual intercourse, or the use of rectal suppositories or vaginal douches/suppositories. The degree of restriction depends on whether or not the woman is experiencing any vaginal bleeding or pre-term labor.
