What are the early pregnancy signs you must know? Have you been having lower abdominal pain that comes and goes? Are you worried about your missed period and asking, am I pregnant?

Lower abdominal pain can be one of the early pregnancy signs. Pregnancy affects all parts of your body. It is more evident in your expanding belly.

As the baby increases in size, abdominal discomfort becomes common. This is due to the expanding uterine/ pelvic muscles and ligaments.

What are [url=https://i1.wp.com/moxiber.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Early-pregnancy-signs-3.png?resize=930%2C620&ssl=1]abdominal cramps[/url]?
Abdominal pain is any pain noticed between the chest and pelvic regions. Abdominal pain can be an ache, cramp, dull, intermittent, or sharp. It may be referred to as a stomachache. Pain can occur when there is inflammation of any abdominal organ.

The ligaments are the major source of cramps during pregnancy. These ligaments stretch as your uterus gets bigger to accommodate the increase in the size of the baby.

The ligaments cramp most times when you change position. The cramps may be on one side of the abdomen or both.

The ligament cramps are more common in weeks 14-20 but can occur anytime during pregnancy. Lying down on your side will help to relieve ligament cramps. Placing a warm water bottle on your abdomen will help to relieve the pains.

Mild abdominal cramps can occur as early as the fourth month in some women. While in some others, it goes unnoticed until the sixth to seventh months. These mild contractions are called Braxton-Hicks contractions.

Braxton-Hicks are irregular contractions and relaxation of the uterine muscle. They are sometimes called prodromal or “false labor” pains.

What does Braxton Hicks feel like?
Braxton Hicks are mild contractions in the abdomen that are not painful. Some women describe them as being awkward contractions that feel like mild menstrual cramps. They come and go without taking any medications.

You can take a walk, sit down, or shift position if the pains persist.

As your due date approaches, these contractions become stronger and regular. It will be difficult to tell if the contractions you have are Braxton-Hicks or labor.

If you are not sure about the contractions, call your doctor or medical specialist.
