Is Mommy experiencing the pregnancy disorder such as abdominal pain during pregnancy? Abdominal pain was found to be a sign of dangerous diseases. Abdominal pain usually occurs in early pregnancy. There are several causes of this pain.

The first cause of this pregnancy disorder is implantation. This usually occurs in the first 2 to 6 weeks while the fetus is now trying to attach itself to the uterine wall. The pain feels similar to the pain during menstruation. Implantation by fetus is necessary so that the fetus becomes stronger and can grow well in the womb.

The second cause is the hormonal changes. Mommy’s hormones during pregnancy are often changed and this condition affects Mommy’s physical condition so there will be nothing to worry about. 

The above two causes can be identified as harmless causes; however, there are other pregnancy disorders which need to be observed as they are dangerous for the health of Mommy and the fetus. Here are some of the causes :

HELLP occurs in the last 3 months of pregnancy, and the pregnant woman will feel the pain in the upper right side of the abdomen. This syndrome can cause other disorders, one of which is preeclampsia.

Preeclampsia

Preeclampsia occurs due to Mommy’s high blood pressure. Preeclampsia is caused due to increased protein in the urine. Preeclampsia can affect Mommy’s internal organs and at worst can affect the placenta. Another impact of preeclampsia is birth defects. 

Ectopic Pregnancy

This pregnancy disorder can cause miscarriage. And, this is not properly treated, it can also be dangerous and life-threatening for Mommy.
