18 weeks pregnant mother

Answer: Hello dear. Some abdominal pain during pregnancy is normal: After all, your organs are constantly shifting, your uterus is expanding, and your ligaments are stretching. However if the pain is severe and unbearable, you'll have to contact your gynecologist immediately. Few of the remedies are : Sit down, put your feet up, and relax. Resting comfortably should relieve your symptoms. A hot water bottle or heating pad might help. Drink lots of liquids. When you do feel a pain, bend towards the pain to relieve it. Take care.

Answer: Dear if the pain in constant and mild it could be due to baby position. However if its coming and going abd regular intervals then it could be braxton hucks which are false contraction. If u change the position and u get relief in that pain then it could be braxton hicks. But it is constant it is better to consult doctor once to be on safer side. Hope it helps.
