Lower Left Abdominal Pain During Pregnancy

Should I be worried about lower left abdominal
pain during pregnancy? You should always be worried about sudden
pains during pregnancy. I know it isn’t labor, but otherwise, I
have no idea what it could be. There are tendons that are strained during
pregnancy, and they can give you twinges if you strain them. I’m not lifting weights, well, just the
baby. They are strained by the pregnancy, and then
you stand up suddenly, it can tense up painfully. Someone told me it might be gas. Constipation and gas can cause pain during
pregnancy. It is worse if you are chronically dehydrated. I heard that labor cures this problem. Labor does involve so many contractions that
it tends to force all your waste out, too. Then again, your pains could be practice contractions. I didn’t think you could really practice
for labor. Even the parenting education courses feel like a joke. Yeah, diapering and practicing holding a plastic
doll feels inadequate. In real life, it would be squirming and squealing. Could the pain be a sign of a problem with
the pregnancy? If you were early in the pregnancy, it might
be a sign of an ectopic pregnancy. You’d have pain and bleeding in the first or second
month of the pregnancy. Can’t that cause internal bleeding? Sure. The kid is growing somewhere that can’t
make room for it, which puts pressure on the surrounding organs. What if the pain varies, getting worse if
I stand up or walk around? Get to an emergency room. It might be the
placenta detaching, and that could be fatal if it happens. The placenta has to detach eventually when
I’m in labor. If it detaches at any other time, you could
bleed to death. This makes me wish it was just appendicitis.
