Abdominal Pain during Pregnancy

Introduction: Abdominal Pain during Pregnancy

Abdominal pain is a common side effect of pregnancy. Abdominal pain may occur due to the stretching of the ligaments that support the uterus as a fetus grows and the uterus gets heavier. This is known as round ligament pain. Abdominal pain can also be a symptom of the normal onset of labor or of a serious complication of pregnancy, such as miscarriage, threatened abortion, or premature labor.
