Pregnant, have continuous sharp pains in the lower abdomen after lifting heavy object, prominent on deep breathing. Alarming?
I am about 13 weeks pregnant. I picked up my 33 pound 2 1/2 year old last night to take her to bed. As soon as I stood up with her, I felt a sharp pain in my lower right abdomen . Ever since then, I have been having pain in the same spot. The pain is not constant - it just happens whenever I move a certain way, cough , or even take a very deep breath. Could I just have strained a muscle or the round ligament , or could this be a sign of a more serious problem?
Hi, Thanks for query.
It seems that you have got abdominal muscle strain as it occurs when there is movement of that particular muscle.
Nothing to worry,within 2-3 days it will be alright.
now do not lift weight or your baby.
Ok and bye.
