Is it normal to have Abdominal pain during pregnancy?

Updated: Aug 6

- Abdominal pain is normal during second trimester of the pregnancy.

- Commonly termed as Round Ligament pain, it creates cramping that results in a sharp pain.

- It occurs because of the expansion of uterus and ligaments stretching.

- Other reasons for abdominal pain can be gas or bloating.

- It is a temporary pain which can be avoided by resting on one side with knees bent and pillows between the legs.

- However if there is severe pain followed by bleeding, consulting the doctor is necessary.
