Belly Pain (Definition)

Belly pain is also known as Abdominal pain. Abdominal pain is pain that you feel anywhere between your chest and groin. This is often referred to as the stomach region or belly.

Pain in the abdomen can originate from any one of them, including: Organs related to digestion -- the end of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestines, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas The aorta -- a large blood vessel that runs straight down the inside of the abdomen The appendix -- an organ in the lower right abdomen that no longer serves much function The kidneys -- two bean-shaped organs that lie deep within the abdominal cavity The spleen -- an organ involved in blood maintenance and infection control However, the pain may start from somewhere else -- like your chest or pelvic area. You may also have a generalized infection, such as the flu or strep throat, that affects many parts of your body.

I'm 31 weeks pregnant with my first child. I'm only 18 years old but i've been having upper and lower abdominal pain and discomfort with gasses?

Not unusual but...: Abdominal pains are commonplace during the later stages of pregnancy as the baby pushes on your abdominal organs/intestines. Can lead to reflux, heartburn, different bowel patterns, etc. However, talk to doc if pains are rhythmic, like labor pains or pain with urination, fever, etc that could signal an infection that needs attention.
