33 weeks pregnant mother

Question: My wife is in 33rd week and we have gone through LFT. Lft is showing ALP 186. Is there something to worry about.

Question
Answer: Alkaline phosphatase or ALP increases normally in pregnancy. There's nothing to worry about it if the AST and ALT is in normal range. Why was LFT advised now? Did she have any itching in her body Hope this information is useful to you.

    Thanks for your reply.

Answer: ALP levels normally rise in late pregnancy, this lab test is not diagnostic alone for liver problems; bilirubin, AST and ALT increases have more diagnostic value for liver disease in pregnancy

Question: I have stomachache often in the lower abdomen? Is there something to worry about?
Answer: Hello dear, Abdominal pain is perfectly normal and there is really nothing you can do other than rest every chance you get.  If you are working, take a little nap during your breaks.  It will pass in time.  Hang in there. Your physical changes this week. You may feel occasional cramps and lower abdominal pains. If you are feeling a lot pain plz visit ur doctor before taking any medication. Sit down, put your feet up and relax. Resting comfortably should reduce any belly aches. 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. 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. .... Pat  hot water bag or bootle on that area... Hope it helped.... Take care urself...

Question: I had some bleeding in 9th week of pregnancy. Is there something to worry about?
Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help. This probably might be implantation bleeding. The bleeding should only last for one or two days, but every woman is different. Occasionally some women can continue to have a light period for the first month or two after they get pregnant. If the bleeding is heavy and you are pregnant, you'll have to contact your gynecologist immediately. Take care.
