Oh, that's terrible. Pregnancy is not 'that' long but being in pain for 9 months is TOO long for sure. What does your ob/gyn say about the pain? Something very common especially in early pregnancy is constipation. The hormones of pregnancy slow things down, make your colon sluggish. Even if you are going, you could still be constipated. Try drinking ore than usual amounts of fluid. Get a bit extra fiber as well. Also do some exercise regularly. Have you told your doctor about the pain? Great news that you ruled out ectopic pregnancy! Women do report abdominal pain. There is stretching that goes on, and yes, your digestive tract is impacted with pregnancy. LOTS of hormones shifting. These are the issues to make sure you call your doctor right away if you have abdominal pain: Fever or chills
Spotting or bleeding (with or without cramps)
Vision changes (including blurred vision, seeing flashing lights or spots, sensitivity to light, or temporary blindness)
Pain or burning during urination, difficult urinating or blood in your urine
Dizziness or feeling faint
I would actually check in with your ob/gyn again. See if they have any ideas. Keep in touch and let me know if anything helps.
Well, when I first started getting the pain I was having regular bowel movements everyday. Right before I found out I was
pregnant I started getting more constipated. I decided to take some laxatives per doctors orders but I am still having the pain even after I go....maybe there's just something stuck in there lol.
I see my obgyn next week and I'll definitely let him know. It doesn't help that I am craving all the things I shouldn't be eating right now lol but I definitely will make an effort to eat more fiber.
Thanks for your response :)
