Answer: Hello dear, It is very common to feel body aches in pregnancy. As your uterus expands, you may feel aches and pains in the back, abdomen, groin area, and thighs. Many women also have backaches and aching near the pelvic bone due to increased weight, and loosening joints. Here are some simple remedies that you can follow to prevent cramps. 1. Eat a healthy diet 2. A warm bath can relax you and remove pain in the calf area. 3. Do gentle exercise to help blood circulation. 4. Have your prenatal vitamins regularly. 5. Reduce the salt intake to prevent fluid retention in the body. 6. Stretch your calf muscle several times during the day to reduce cramps 7. You can massage the cramped muscles with ice or cold compress to reduce pain. 8. Have vitamin B supplements to reduce cramps.

Question: Having occassional slight cramps in left side of lower abdomen since morning. Is it normal?
Answer: Congratlations for your pregnancy. In early pregnancy, the stretching of ligaments are responsible for abdominal cramps. As the baby grows and demands more space, the uterus stretches itself pushing the other organs. Because of this, the stomach pain occur. Besides this constipation, large meals, or flatulence can also lead to abdominal pain. If pain is unbearable then consult with doctor.
