Yes: Depends on if it is your first baby, you size weight and physical condition. If you have very developed abdominal muscles it will appear that you do not show/ if there is a concern see your md. Your uterus does not reach the umbilicus until you are about 20weeks. ...Read more
4 months pregnant. Full intense stomach cramp (not like menstrual cramp) after lunch. Lasted 5 minutes or less. Should I be concerned? Feels fine now.
Likely okay: The intestines, which sit on top of the uterus, are more sensitive throughout pregnancy. Food that used to be eaten without a worry, can sometimes cause pain, diarrhea, constipation etc. Stomach cramps such as the ones you describe are common in pregnancy. The hormones of pregnancy slow your foods transit time through intestine down, so more pains, naturally. If it's gone, you're likely good. ...Read more

Can sore lower abdomen be a symptom of pregnancy? I am four days late. And I would assume if I am id only be one week. To soon to test?
Can I be pregnant?:
It is impossible to give you any valid answer for your life. You failed to mention when you ovulate in your cycle and where you were in this cycle when you had sexual exposure to fresh semen.
But, in general, if a period is delayed it is time to test. This is usually more than fourteen days after ovulation and thus plenty of time for an impregnated fetus to implant and be growing in the uterus. ...Read more
My lower abdomen is growing at an alarming rate & has been bloating for about three weeks. Four pregnancy tests, all have been negative. What's wrong?
Difficult to say: Without being able to properly examine you. A sensation of bloating or crampiness is commonly associated with constipation or excess gas production in your gut. Increasing the amount of fiber and water in your diet is a good way to combat constipation. Medicines such as docusate, simethicone and senna sometimes help with constipation. ...Read more
I'm 18 weeks pregnant I am experiencing tightness in my lower abdomen. This has been happening for the past four days. Is this a contraction?
18 week 'tightening': Between 16 and 20 weeks your baby and your uterus are growing at a tremendous rate and are gaining a lot of weight. This causes more pressure on the ligaments (called 'round' ligaments) that hold up your uterus. It is very common to get a sensation of discomfort, tightness, or actual pain between 16 and 20 weeks. You can take either tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin for this. ...Read more
Had sex four days after my period my period last 7 days the condom broke nd I have been having mild cramping in my lower abdomen could I be pregnan?
Unlikely: If I am interpreting your question correctly, the condom broke about day 11 of your menstrual cycle. Assuming you have an approximate 28 day cycle, you would not be expected to ovulate by then. Cramping likely not due to pregnancy. Take some naproxen or ibuprofen for a couple of days. I expect your period on time; if not, do pregnancy test a week later. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Am 10 week 4 days in pregnancy. Am getting pain often in my left abdomen. Is there any problem for baby or it is quite normal??? .
Probably normal: People often forget to mention just how painful pregnancy can be! Your joints are spreading in the pelvis, ligaments around the uterus are stretching, the organs are getting squished. Aches and pains are pretty much the norm in every pregnancy. If you have vaginal bleeding associated the you need to be seen. ...Read more

I'm 4 weeks pregnant, I have pain when pushing down on lower right part of abdomen, what can it be?
Tough to say: At 4 weeks gestation the likelihood that the discomfort is due to the pregnancy is small. It could be muscular esp. If reproducible. Sometimes women can have fibroids and not experience discomfort until pregnancy. The two most concerning possibilities are appendicitis and ectopic. Both conditions require evaluation by a doctor--pursue f/u if pain persists or worsens. ...Read more

Depends: The answer depends on the specific exercise, your medical history, level of fitness prior to pregnancy, and other factors.

Not reliable: Abdominal heaviness is not a reliable sign of early pregnancy. More reliable is a missed period, nausea, breast tenderness.

Maybe: Because of the rotation of the uterus to the right, you might perceive an assymetry or 'swelling' on one side or the other. Run this by your OB and make sure that they do not need to do an ultrasound of the uterus. ...Read more

Possible: It is possible. Pregnancy does cause nausea often referred to as morning sickness. This can have varying degrees of intensity and timing. However, usually gets better as more time progresses into the pregnancy and esp by the 3rd trimester. Pregnancy can also increase chances of reflux which may be the burning sensation you are experiencing. See you md for more information and clarification. ...Read more

My wife has continuous pain in lower abdominal as she is 14 week pregnant? Is it normal or need to worry?
Talk to doctor: Continuous pain doesn't sound normal. Sometimes women do have some ligament pain with pregnancy, even at 14 weeks, but continuous pain makes me think she deserves to be checked out by doctor. Could be pregnancy related, or could be her appendix, constipation, gastroenteritis or something else as well. An exam and history are in order. Hope everything is okay. ...Read more
For about 1 week I feel a pain and vibration at the lower left abdomen, is this is the symtom of pregnancy?
I have been having light cramps in my abdomen could I be pregnant? I have been consfipated for two days also.
Light cramps can be: From multiple reasons both obgyn and non obgyn, if u are a few days away from your period or at the time of the missed period a blood preg test would be + so your obgyn can do that if neg then an ultrasound can be done and cultures to see if it is from the pelvic organs or not, since u have already had 4 births most likely u should ahve an idea if u are preg or not. ...Read more
