Lower Abdominal Pain

Postby MominMD » Mon May 09, 2011 4:57 am

I started getting some lower abdominal pain and pressure on Wednesday. It was pretty mild, and I chalked it up to growing pains. Thursday it was a little worse. By Friday I was worried and went to the doc. Worried it was contractions.

They did an NST, and all was fine. No major contractions showed up. Babies HBs were great. They tested for a uti/bladder infection, and that was fine too.

They put me on rest for the weekend and told me to drink a lot of water. I am feeling better, and DP went and picked me up a maternity belt yesterday. It seemed to help a bit.

I am returning to work today, and hoping all goes well. I am not ready to be put on bedrest yet, or taken out of work. I am going to take it easy.

This happened to me too. It would get worse for a few days, then get better. My stomach would hurt alot too, not like an upset stomach but a pain in my stomach. Feels like you get it from both ends doesn't it? Hang in there mama, hugs!

That is pretty much my mantra these days. And put my feet up whenever I can.

I had to break away from the rest on Saturday to attend my brother's Memorial Service. Every time I sat down my cousin ran around and found something to stick under my feet. It was cute.
