I'm 11 weeks and been having some pain in my lower tummy. Its a pain that comes and goes. At this moment I feel pressure.

If: If you are pregnant and having pain, it would be important to discuss that with your physician. Sometimes pain during pregnancy can be caused by "round ligament pain", which is the stretching of the ligaments. If a patient has pain, it is important to determine if the patient has had an ultrasound to be sure the pregnancy is in the uterus, not the tubes. If you have already had an ultrasound that would be helpful to know. If you have continued pain, bleeding, or light-headedness, then this should be discussed with your doctor. ...Read more

Can give it a try...: One should choose an exercise he or she really enjoys. Any form of exercise burns calories, so if one does not eat or drink more calories than he is using during his exercise, then his body will burn up fat as fuel. However, if a person drinks a large orange juice (about 300 calories) while exercising, and exercises away only 200 calories, he will still get wider even though he is exercising. ...Read more
